This White House Protestor Knitted A Giant Chart Of The US Budget

It’s displayed on an umbrella. She also knitted an “Occupy Grandparents” chair cozy.

1. A protestor sat outside the White House on Monday with a hand-knitted chart of the federal budget.

Stretched across an umbrella about as big as she was, the chart pointed out the disparities between government spending on defense versus everything else.

2. She also rocked a knitted chair cozy reading “Occupy Grandparents: Pay It Forward.”

And a hat reading “Stop XL,” which is most likely a reference to opposition for the Keystone XL pipeline. Like any yarn-bomber worth their salt, the protestor made sure to cover every surface at her disposal with knitting.
