My knitting group has completed and attached a knitted tag to a bike rack in Boston. The group is a range of ages, mostly around 40s however I'm in my 20s and there is even an 8 year old in our group! It was really great for each of us to make a few flowers and we attached it to an icord vine.
ETA: I'm sorry I didn't mean to offend people. I understand that parts of this project will not biodegrade readily, however the intent was to bring some life in the community and inspire others to knit.
