<giggle> Look at the link to the blog! The picture of the "dog" is hilarious.

The location says it all "Montrose." I love visiting there.

I saw a, um, lightpost cozy. Bright pink. On a bridge over the freeway. :D

Candace, I work in the Montrose neighborhood. Are you in Houston too?

I wish! heh. I live in Victoria. But shop in Houston, and use Drs there, and my family is all there. So I visit at least once a month. I go to "Yarns 2 Ewe", its the only shop Ive been to in Houston. Where do you go?

i think it is brilliant! Imagine being a store owner coming in to find that someone has knitted a cozy for their door handle over night...heh


i suppose we are the only ones who would find this in the spirit of "random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty" huh?

I was just glad that I had read the article and knew what it was! I was driving and probably would have missed it if I hadn't known what I was looking at. I wonder if it's still there? :thinking: Do people take those things? I wonder what you'd do with it?

Candace, I have been to Yarns 2 Ewe most--I think they have the best selection in Houston. Nancy's Knits (Braeswood and Chimney Rock, I think?) has a lot but her shop is kind of crowded and dark. Pretty good prices though. I've also been to Mary Charles Yarn (where I was coming back from when I saw the lightpole!) and Nimblefingers, which have moderate amounts of yarn, mostly pricey ones. Now I just need to venture out to the yarn stores in the suburbs...
