Magda Sayeg: Knitted Graffiti

I stumbled upon this a few days ago and was so completely amazed by it that I just had to share. An artist by the name of Magda Sayeg has been creating these delightful public 'installations' for years using knitting as a medium. She has travelled the world from Sydney to Milan making these truly wonderful pieces of art. I once tried learning to knit (failing miserably I might add) but I would suspect one would get really good and fast, not to mention p-a-t-i-e-n-t at knitting by attempting a series like this.

Here are some of my favorites...

 I can't begin to imagine how she got this one done...
