Olek, the Lower East Side crochet artist behind the yarn bike, the baby yarn bike, and the yarn car has yet again one-upped herself, this time covering a full-fledged human in a yarn suit and setting him loose on the New York subway system. Subway Art blogger Jowy Romano took to the trains "behaving normally" after being crocheted into this full-on (including face) garb by the artist -- to a mostly positive public response. One question: Where do you keep your Unlimited Yarn MetroCard? (Olek's show at the Christopher Henry Gallery has been extended through November 24.)
