I saw a fabulous example of guerilla knitting a few years back in Jubilee Park (I live in Annandale). It was draped gently around a park bench. I am really enjoying your blog.

The stripey poles are the work of a certain local artist that works in Newtown. There are a few stripey poles around in Kings Cross & two on Wilford Street off Enmore Road. :)

On the top o the Crumpetty Tree
The Quangle-Wangle sat,
But his face you could not see,
On account of his Beaver Hat.
For his Hat was a hundred and two feet wide,
With ribbons and bibbons on every side,
And bells, and buttons, and loops, and lace,
So that nobody ever could see the face
Of the Quangle Wangle Quee.
