  1. Let’s cover up retroreflective street signs that can be seen in the dark with these knit abominations. What a terrible and dangerous idea.

  2. Wouldn’t it be crazy to change all the street names around too! It subverts the directionality of the partiarchal destinationist travel construct, and it’s knitted! I’m gonna go make me some duct tape stop sign covers.

  3. @Jared they’re not covering Stop signs or anything! But regardless, I wish they made retroreflective yarn! =] Maybe Norm could make his duct tape versions out of reflective tape.
