“Yarn Bombing” The SEPTA

IMG_4520.jpg

Earlier today I got a message from a certain Ishknits yarn bombing artist telling me that she was heading out this afternoon to bomb SEPTA’s Blue Line and invited me to tag along to photograph it all for this blog. (Which, first off, is amazing; thanks to all the street artists who have, and are continuing to, contact me about stuff like this. Love it!!)

Needless to say I hopped right on the El, and from 15th street to 69th street and then back to the Dolphin street stop, she installed 3 pieces on 3 different trains. And even while we started on a near empty train by the end it was the beginning of rush hour and the train was packed, all the people on each train we very excited about the work. Moving out of our way when we needed them too, taking photos, and chatting with both of us. One older woman even asked us excitedly, “is this for the internet?” “Yup, it is, ma’am.”
