Crochet-Covered Bicycle in NYC

Yarn_Covered_BIke.jpg
Our friend, Zontee, over at Lion Brand Yarn, posted a picture of this crochet-covered bicycle she spotted while out in New York.

Notice that even the kick-stand and wheels are completely covered!
I’m not sure where it came from or why it was there, but it was a fun sight that reminded me of the surprising places you can come across yarn art.

Do any of you happen to know the story of this bicycle? Do you have other favorite yarn-art sightings you’d like to share?
