There was a project in Sacramento a number of years ago where a large group of 100 knitters, made "tree sweaters". Each knitter had five trees to knit for. The trees that line the street of midtown Sacramento are very old and large, so that was a lot of yarn and a lot of knitting. Each Knitter went and measured their trees and got to work. Each "sweater" was full of many colors and patterns. When all of the knitters had finished all of their sweaters they picked a date in October and at midnight they all went out and sewed their sweaters onto the trees. That is 500 tree sweaters! The next morning people woke up and when they went outside, all of the trees for blocks and block were dress in their knitted finery... For months, the group kept quiet so no one knew who had done this wonderful thing, but everyone loved it. Finally around Christmas the project and its creators were revealed. The sweaters lasted on the trees for a few seasons. On one block, they lasted for 5 years, because the people on that block decided to continue to repair them. Don't you think that was a wonderful surprise?


That was a wonderful surprise for sure Jane :-)

  • maskerade
    The first step is always the most exciting. I am sitting in a small hotel room, somewhere in Norway. I am knitting, and all of a sudden I knew it was time to start a knitting blog. Maskerade, masquerade, playing with words as maske is the Norwegian word for a knitted stich, rad is a row. Knitted stich in a row - maskerade.
