Can you be arrested for public knitting, or, what is graffiti?

Since I've been writing a lot about graffiti, and a little about kntting, here's a great picture that oddly but wonderfully combines the two:
I found this via an hilariously named, LA-based site referred to me by a commenter, Knitta, please! That's some funny, and fun, stuff. Their gallery is filled with examples of creative, neat knitting products adorning public spaces.

If this talented woman perpetrated this heinous knitting crime in the state of Texas, how quickly would she be incarcerated? Which overcrowded prison would she go to? Yes, I think it is pretty hysterically funny.

I love the Kafkaesque notion that there might exist "knitting crimes," and wonder what other knitting-related offenses may be out there, looming.

Okay, I get it - it took reading it about four times. "Looming", looms, knitting, weaving. I thought there was a joke in there somewhere but I couldn't tell. I think that means it was a BAD joke. :-)

Thanks, Grits, I love that picture.

The world is a wonderful place. I saw a red "doggie sweater" on the hood ornament of a Jaguar in New Orleans in the late '70's.

How could this delightful idea possibly be a crime?

Have we really lost our compass to that degree? I sure hope not!

See also this Houston Press article on Knitta. Personally I get a kick out of their nicknames, "Loop Dogg" "The Notorious N.I.T." etc. :P

Looks like she adopted a stray light pole. Some people just dote on pets way too much.
