guerrilla knitting

Outside of a library in Virginia we see this:

looks like an ordinary water plug
until you get closer and realize that it is wearing a sweater
What?
Who?
Why?
Then casting my eyes around i notice that the trees are also yarn adorned


and the best part is that no one in the library knows anything about it.
The knitting just appeared.
With no explanation.
I mean, i could understand if trees got cold or if they cared about fashion or if it was December.
The library is next to a senior center so all i can imagine is some awesome spry granny or group of grannies sneaking about do drive-by guerrilla knitting.

It's called Urban Knitting. Google and you'll find examples all over the place.

Yarn Bombing started back in 2009 with some bored knitters on the Internet. A book by the same name came out back then.
