LMAO Two things come to mind when I look at the those pictures. The first thing is that it reminds me of that group Knitta, Please! They go around tying knit objects onto tree trunks, bike racks, door handles, etc. Then it also reminded me of the episodes of South Park where Mr. Garrison loses Mr. Hat and replaces him with Mr. Twig and he has that little purple shirt on.

That is the coolest thing I have ever seen, and maybe the funniest :roflhard: I want to make a big one for the tree by my back door.

You have to wonder who stole the first sweater.

Oh yes! There is a tree outside our house that definitely needs a sweater!

Now, would someone be able to help me sneak one onto the pathetic tree growing in the lobby of the bank I pay my Student Loans at? It is a real tree, but just as in need of some attention.

HaHaHA!!! :rofl:

I KNEW I'd find some kindred souls on here!! :muah: Let's please do pay some attention to the underappreciated, scraggly, lonesome trees in our lives, and knit them a sweater ...

Hildegaard, you're on!! Being new to KAL's, how does it work? April should work - y'all are right, Arbor Day's around the corner!, it looks like a quick project!!

Well, in this case, we'll all knit a sweater for a tree. :shrug: Have you checked out the KAL Forum? People join up and knit the same project, or a similar project, at the same time. Click on the link in my signature to see this month's challenge.

Boy asked me what I was doing because I kept walking from the front door to the back door checking trees out. I told him I was "surveying" the trees because I wanted to make one of them a sweater. He gave the :?eyebrow: look and told me I was crazy.

Just wait till one day he comes home with all his buisness work people and *all* the trees and bushes have sweaters :twisted:
