Ishknits Installs “Time’s Up” Yarnbomb in Philly

April 19, 2018

A new installation this week by Philly-based yarnbomber, Ishknits, on 11th street at Callowhill street proclaims: “Time’s Up”!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last handful of months, then you know that Ishknits’ new piece is a large, knitted version of the black and white Time’s Up logo. A departure from Ishknits generally much more colorful yarnbombs, she wrote the following to her Instagram after installing the piece:

“In late 2016, I installed one of my Khaleesi pieces at this location with the aim of amplifying our voices and our stories and our experiences. Now, in 2018 – we have a movement. It has a name. The joy this gives me is beyond words. I am so proud of the women who have collectively raised their voices loud enough to make this possible. Special thank you to Tarana Burke for #MeToo.”

Absolutely love this, Ishknits!
