Well I got bored with knitting nice things from a pattern, so I decided to knit my tree a sweater and have some fun. I got the idea from a post a couple months back about tree sweaters. My neighbors probably think Im nuts, but its so cute! I have more pictures on my blog. Just wanted to share the tree joy with everyone:muah:

Love the sweater and your house is awesome. Can I have it?:grin:

We're renting right now in a community that has basically no trees. I can't wait til our other home sells (job relocation) so I can get the heck out of here and go into the woods. Then I'll have LOTS of trees to make stuff for.

I don't know what it is but, every time I see a tree sweater, I get the stupidest grin on my face. They're just so darn cute!!!!!!

Maybe I'll make one for the mailbox post. Somehow, though, I don't think it'll be the same...........................:crying:

Very cute! I am afraid our ornery squirrel would have sweater envy and rip it off the tree if I made one for the tree on our deck (we live in a condo) That is a cute idea though.

OH how cute is that!!!! I love the stripes. It somehow just just "goes" with the house. Maybe they both just look happy. Very cool. I'm so inspired!:cheering:

Aw, thank you guys:aww: I :heart:love:heart: my house too, I think its the best, but Boy was the one who designed it (is that wrong to love my house?:??). I have plenty of tree's to make sweaters for, but we trimmed all the lower branches off so when I mow with the tractor, I dont get knocked in the head and knocked off.

Larudden, You should totally knit one for your mailbox. Thats my next project!

Syndactylus, I felt a little silly at first sewing it on, then it became kinda liberating(even though it was in my own front yard). It wasnt like I was spray painting or destroying anything, I was just simply giving a lonely tree a sweater. I doubt anyone would say anything out in public. I totally plan on getting a tree or two at the U of M campus this fall:teehee:

Quiltlady, glad I could bring a smile to your face. If your not smiling, your not living:muah:
