FIELD NOTES: Attention mysterious Bloorcourt street artist: you have an admirer. Over the past few months, if not longer, small knitted delights have been popping up near the intersection of Ossington Avenue and Essex Street. Now, the artist—who clearly admires that intersection—has garnered some admirers of his or her own. Kate Roberts, a local resident, wrote us to say, “I’d love to know who is behind these lovely creations. They are bringing so much beauty and love to our city and its residents.” If you’re reading this, mysterious knitter, know that your small works are appreciated. If you’re keen on becoming a little less mysterious, there are people waiting to praise you for your efforts.
