Tree Sweater Yarn Bomb

Posted in garage sale, yarnbomb, yarnbomb photos on May 12, 2011 by jaesee

Tonight in the West Seattle Junction was our monthly Art Walk, and what better time for a yarn bomb that during a night celebrating local art? So for the last few days I spent my time knitting a sweater… for a tree. I mean, it is pretty cold here still even though it is May and supposed to be spring. The trees are cold, right?

Oh, and the West Seattle Blog totally SCOOPED ME! I was caught in the act!

Honestly, it is way more fun to do it in the light of day with passersby. Obviously I wouldn’t be blogging all about it if I didn’t like the attention, right? It’s fun to talk to people who love what I’m doing! It’s also fun to talk to fellow knitters.

Don’t forget, we’re sale #204 this Saturday, West Seattle Community Garage Sale Day. All proceeds go to the kidney transplant fund for my mom. It’s a very good cause, and we’ll have a ton of great stuff. Please come!

And without further ado, here are the photos of the tree sweater!
