O to the M to the G. I have experienced my 1st taste of Urban Knitting, also know as Guerrilla Knitting. How amazing is this!! A sweater on a tree. Urban Knitting is a group activity organized to clothe and adorn objects in our urban landscape. Knitters come from far and wide, pick their urban target and lovingly create patchwork squares which are fitted to said object. I had heard of this phenomenon and seen some amusing pics on the interweb but never actually seen the end product. This lucky tree has a patchwork designed sweater with lovely twisted braid detail and a little central patch that says "love you philly". Its so touching. My only concerns are how hot the tree must be (the weather is beautiful and scorching here) and how jealous all the other trees must feel. Tree fashion, you saw it here first!
