  1. You always knock me out with your interpretation of the world. The sticker has to be in the best placement...among all the serious notices. Fantastic stuff. and the knit ups look sturdy and wonderful with the message. It just occurred to me that part of a knit up may be simply to allow us to "lighten up" a bit...

  2. Oh Lynne that is so beautiful.....
    There is a great park in the midle of the city here that is all wooded and runs along a creek.We take Lucy there for her walks and Tony and I have talked about making prayer flags to hang in the trees.When we do it I'll take pictures.
    You've inspired us.......

  4. ooooh! this song is on my TOP FIVE ALL TIME FAVORITES ... could you possibly listen to it and be angry or ugly?!? I think NOT.

    Talk about smiles & happy making ... I LOVE that you put a request for practice on your knit ups AND that you showed up armed with grrl's stickers, too.

    ... the world is a better place having you share the air. :)

  8. Lynne, your knit up and sticker adventures are so wonderful ! I so wish I could be the one to come upon them...works of art in the snowy landscape.
    Excellent Guerilla Work !

  9. I love the idea of someone innocent of blogdom coming into that scene and seeing your lovely fairy creations. Would they go home with a greater sense of peace and wonder about the world? I think so.

    Great pieces!

  10. Fabulous Lynne!!!!!
    Love them all. I wish I could walk up on these generous and kind statements.
    You are so much fun!

  11. Lynne this looks like it was so much fun. What a great job.

    You of course can be a queen. Totally.

    But I don't want you playing any queenly stuff when I say 'Lynne, I need another drink and my back hursts.' And you say 'I'm a queen too and I'm not getting off my bum either.' I will have to say 'Fuck Lynne, okay, whatever, Linda Sue, Tessa, can you guys get me and Karin and Lynne a drink.'

    Okay it seems like I have it figured out. We're good to go.

    Love you.

  13. Love your global guerilla knit up pole, your tags and your wonderful signs. Have never seen the twist of your sign " Random kindness and senseless acts of beauty". That's a new one for me, but must say, beauty is never senseless and...wish everyone practiced random acts of kindness everyday. Wouldn't that be wonderful!Thanks for sharing your guerilla knit up post. Can't imagine how you got your knitting up so high - and in the snow!

  15. Awesome Lynne! I'm thoroughly enjoying all of the Guerillas at Play!

  16. thank you so much, *everyone*!

    rose, yeah, *i* would if i came upon it! i love seeing guerilla art when i'm out. a deep smile passes through me...

    rofl, renee! if i pull any shit, you better tell me to f* off!! the more i think about it the more i think we might want to have more than one cottage -- a small community even. karin wants a musician, and a masseuse would be nice, so yeah, we might want to think bigger. a small community of gentle souls... : ) xo

    jill, surely whoever came up with that quote meant acts of beauty that *seem* senseless to some people, because we all know there's no such thing as senseless beauty. ; )

  18. It will feel so good for the stranger who stumbles upon those knits and the messages you've attached. The meaning is so clear and uplifting.

  19. you always knock me out - you a-MUSE me in so many ways - love it all - and especially that little red angel hovering below...
    btw - I used the same stickers you sent me on my baby wannabe post - they have been patiently waiting to inspire Cedar to belly dance...

    much love to you

  20. also btw
    this song always ALWAYS makes me cry - for many reasons - but I first heard it at my parents 50th - as pics of my sis and I were clicking by...

    hi shayla, thank you... i figure it's best to be clear. ; )

  22. Fantastic - great choice of music too (did you know he died about 10 years ago - an amazing man who promoted Hawaiian rights - seems apt for guerilla movement!)

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a glorious way to spread warmth and positivity around!

    ReplyDelete
  24. it was, robyn! xo

    thank you, rosie... yeah, i did know that he died, and that he was a big proponent of hawaiian rights and independence. a beautiful and thought-full person... i think the end of this video is his friends saying goodbye to him and putting his ashes in the ocean. i agree... perfect song and singer for a guerilla movement. : )

    hey kate, waving and smiling and agreeing!

  25. Great to see your guerilla knit-ups out and about and I love your little calico tags with that wonderful quote.

    Well done Lynne....I am sure they brighten many peoples days as they come across them.
