YouTube: Guerrilla Knitting

Purl one, knit two has gone political, as a new wave of knitters create everything from installation projects to sexy outfits to multimedia presentations. On today's BPP, we continue our series on extreme hobbies as we have an avante-knitter in studio. I'm nor sure this guy is the best knitter or drummer, but he apparently can multitask.

He's managed to knit, play drums AND take himself seriously.

I've seen this guy knit at Maker Faire -- he was parked near the booth where I was teaching people how to knit. Very cool!

The "guy" is my cousin and his name is Corey Fogel. So cool he's getting noticed for his talents.
