The history of knitted cozies around bike racks...

Walking around Philadelphia a couple weeks ago, I noticed that someone had knitted a cozy around a bike rack
. A friend had mentioned these are pretty temporary as they are removed by the city fairly quickly.
Is this something unique to Philly or an idea transplanted from somewhere else in the US or the world? Are there galleries or other pics that document some history of similar bits of "knitted graffiti", for lack of a better term, or street art that involves knitting?
