There was breaking news on the guerilla knitting front this morning as the secret yarnbombinggroup from England arrived in New York for VogueKnitting Live. The identity of the Cornwall urban knitting group has been revealed through Twitter research as Britain's mysterious "graffitigrannys," masters of street art by night, invited to cross the pond for knitting's premier East Coast event hosted this weekend by Vogue Knitting Magazine, Jan 14 - 16 at the Hilton NY Hotel.

Donna Rutledge-Okoro has been blogging about her crochet work since 2004. She opened an Etsy store in 2008 where she sells her crochet patterns and finished items, most of which are accessories and several of which have cool innovative style with an urban edge. Okoro began yarnbombing in 2010. Some of her yarnbombed chairs were placed on display in 2011 at the Jennifer Harwell Gallery and most recently she was commissioned to do some yarnbomb art for the Birmingham Museum of Art. She also teaches crochet. I love that she is immersed in so many different aspects of the business of crochet!
