I love this! What a happy thing to see in the midst of winter. There is a tree close by me that has an easy chair, a bicycle and a desk up in the branches. I have no idea why, but it makes me laugh every time I see it. I hope it wasn't the result of some domestic dispute! I need to take pictures, but never have my camera with me. I wanted get a shot with the snow. I'm sure we've got at least one more storm waiting to dump on us. I'll have to make it a point to shovel out and get there. Meanwhile, we hit 65 today.

First I thought, just like Ruth Anne, "too much yarn and too much time". But she has a great sense of humor and makes people smile, that's something! And: it is a manifestation of (mostly) female power. A kind of flashmob. If there is a tree knitting in every park and garden, it shows what we can do -- being so many of us, working together, going beyond this one, going to tasks that make the world a better place.

This is so bizarre. I wonder if the mystery will be solved. If the person knits this fast, perhaps s/he should be making scarves for cold homeless necks!
