‘House Keeping’ crochet gang strikes Revelstoke again

A midnight knitting raid has left the Revelstoke Grizzly Plaza kokanee sculptures with new sweaters.

Crochet guerillas have once again cozied Grizzly Plaza.

The latest act of guerilla knitting took place under the cover of darkness sometime between Feb. 29 and March 1.

The midnight knitting gang left about nine sweaters on Revelstoke’s famous rusty fish.

While on scene they joined the sweaters to the kokanee with a few last slip stitches before slipping away into the night.

The crochet gang last struck in late January when they cozied the Rotary Clock pole. This latest act shows the gang is getting more organized and brazen, but they’ve yet to master advanced techniques, like picot edges.

“Just to make you smile (happyface doodle),” read a note sealed in a Ziploc bag. “(heart) house keeping”

What do you think of the crochet kokanee sweaters? Should the city remove them right away or leave them on for a while?
