Knitta, Please! Mexico City Tagged By Crafty Crew

MEXICO CITY (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A notorious crew of crafty knitters have struck again and this time, they’re tagging Mexico City.

Knitta Please is a group of undercover knitters who tag streets all over the world with their colorful yarn creations.

The crew – which includes a 72-year-old grandma and leader Magda Sayeg, whose street name is PolyCotN – have plastered their knits in places like New York City, Sweden, Germany, and The Great Wall of China.

Today (Nov. 10), Sayeg is in Mexico City tagging a bus that serves as an art gallery, and it’s her biggest Knitta project to date.

She’s planning to completely cover the bus in bright- colored knits, including headlight and bumper decorations, and has called for backup from local Mexico City knitters and her kids who are “mini Knittas in-training.”

Sayeg will work from “dawn ’til dusk” on the fuzzy masterpiece until she’s finished.

Since the art gallery requested that she come to Mexico to tag, she hasn’t been busted by police, though she’s getting a few puzzled looks from bystanders.
