poetree

some people knit sweaters for cats or for dogs
some people knit mittens for kids
some people knit toques [to wear when they ski]
but i've never seen nothin like this.



{you should always carry your camera phone with you wherever you go in case you run into a tree that grows yarn fruit.}

"what are you knitting, gramma?" 
"a sweater for my tree."

i updated the whatever you do don't push this button button. just so you know.

Hahahah, I love this! You never know, maybe the tree gets cold. So funny!

I'm in love!
This reminds me of that colorful house from the Harriet the Spy movie.
Seen it?

Cara said...

I took that quiz that your button leads you to.
Guess what? I'm literally 50 percent left brained, and 51 percent right brained. how weird is that?

LOVE this. I really should go around my town and do this. But then people would probably cut it off. :( They like to ruin good things here. BUMMMMMMMER.

Dessart? mmm... now I have a craving for the silver coca-cola ball candy.

We missed you tonight at youth! That's what I came to tell you, then I pushed the whatever you do don't push this button button and was happy with what I found.

Look up "knit tagging" or whatever it was called. Basically, instead of graffiti, some people "knit tag" :}
