Mystery Knitter putting jumpers on trees (: - March 16th 2010, 02:43 PM

[QUOTE]A mystery knitter is spinning quite a yarn over one New Jersey shore town by putting jumpers over trees and lamp poles.
Related photos / videos



The unknown West Cape May resident, dubbed The Midnight Knitter, is covering tree branches and lamp posts with little sweaters under cover of darkness.



Residents say they're enthralled by the rainbow of colours that have popped up.
"We don't know who it is," Mayor Pam Kaithern told The Press of Atlantic City.
"Technically they shouldn't be doing it. The police are asking about it, but it's fun and it's a mystery."
No one has admitted to being the phantom knitter but a Facebook page called Salty Knits has over 300 fans.
Resident Susan Longacre takes a walk each morning in Wilbraham Park, where several tree branches and light poles have been given jumpers.
"I think it's wonderful," she said.
But others are indifferent.
"It doesn't bother me. It's better than somebody spray painting all over the place," said local resident Jamie Smith.[/quote]

I LOVE this. It's like the Vodafone advertisement come true:

Although it may be illegal, it's temporary and there's no difficulty in getting the jumpers off. I'd be happy if I were in that area as it gives a nice little fun mystery to go around to spice up life and keep people on their toes. I'd be amazed if they arrested the person(s), maybe tying their hands with a jumper briefly would be appropriate lol.

MWUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I mean...

...

*runs*


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I don’t seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

This is awesome! More people should be willing to have a little silly fun like this.


The atoms that make up you and me were born in the hearts of suns many times greater than ours, and in time our atoms will once again reside amongst the stars. Life is but an idle dalliance of the cosmos, frail, and soon forgotten. We have been set adrift in an ocean whose tides we are only beginning to comprehend and with that maturity has come the realization that we are, at least for now, alone. In that loneliness, it falls to us to shine as brightly as the stars from which we came.

That's really cool. Whether illegal or not, I like the idea. At least the trees won't get cold...

Yuss, my math teacher told us about this the other day. I think it's brilliant.
And slightly amusing that the police are looking into a mystery knitter - great use of tax dollars, glad to know they have their priorities straight..

Haha, that's just awesome. I'd be thrilled if the trees round here started donning jumpers. I think it's a bit of a waste of time and resources looking in to the knitter, surely the police have better things to do.
