On September 10th, 2011 a band of knit-happy taggers took to the Devonport Wharf in Auckland, New Zealand to create a one-of-a-kind art piece. Collected knits from around the world were attached together to create The Woolly Walk Along, an eclectic and awe-inspiring testament to the creative spirit.
Early that foggy morning a team of volunteers led by Helene Dehmer set out to tag the length of Devonport Wharf with knit. Organised to celebrate the launch of the New Zealand Rugby World Cup, The Woolly-Walk-Along was made up of pieces knitted by over 90 people from 9 countries and mailed to New Zealand.
Several of the pieces were auctioned to support the city of Christchurch, which suffered an earthquake and aftershocks this year.
Conceived and organised by Knitting Artist and Woolly Tagger Helene Dehmer - knittygraffity.blogspot.com
