The Yarn Dawgz, an all-male knitting collective, have an installation at San Antonio’s Pearl Brewery. The Dawgz are Billy Muñoz & Dino Foxx, both young Latino artists. Two knitters (and bloggers) Mandy Moore and Leanne Prain, who live in Vancouver, Canada published Yarn Bombing: The Art of Knit Graffiti in the fall of 2009. In the book, they “trace the whimsical movement back to an Austin, Texas, crew called Knitta Please, who tagged a doorknob in Houston in 2005.” In case you didn’t know, International Yarn Bombing day is June 11, 2011.
