A Brooklyn neighborhood has embraced the beauty of yarncrafting. The Montague Street Business Improvement District commissioned artist Magda Sayeg, founder of yarn bombing collective Knitta, Please, to cover a public space with knitted material. Around 50 knitters worked to create 69 colorful, creative parking meter covers. The covers will be on display until mid-June. Click here for more information.
