Jessie Hemmon’s is Philadelphia’s one and only (to our knowledge) Yarn Bomber. Hemmons, who goes by Ishknits, woke up yesterday and just “decided to hand knit some cozies for some subway seats on the Market-Frankford Line of Philadelphia.” We are glad her unsuspecting urban targets yesterday were the three seats on three different El trains running from 15th to 69th Street. Finishing up her Master’s Degree in Clinical and Counseling Psychology and working as a drug and alcohol counselor in Philly does take its toll; Hemmons needs a little release somehow. Conrad Brenner has more.
