Grace Brett, yarn bomber

104-Year-Old ‘Yarn Bomber’ Spreads Her ‘Graffiti’ All Over Town.  A 104 year old knitter who has yarn bombed her local town is thought to be the world’s oldest street artist. Grace Brett is a member of a secret band of guerilla knitters, who have bedecked their town in artful knitting. Called the Souter Stormers, the group hit various landmarks in Selkirk, Borders, with their yarn work last week, following hours of preparation.  Members of the yarn bombing team are mainly over 60, but Grace,  the oldest,  has lived over a century.  Read more here.
