Actually it’s just a whole great load of silly. The eldest kid and I had been talking collaborative knitting project. Then I was happening by blogland and saw this, which reminded me of this and also this. With a wild and woolly, declaration-of-Autumn, long weekend stretching before us, we embarked on a guerilla jumper for one of the maple trees on our street.
The purl rows were my remit and most of the knit rows were the responsibility of the kid, aka Speedy Gonzales. So knitty is she, her hands are but a blur:
Using chunkiest, pink-est stash wool, we had finished two sleeve-lets by the start of school Tuesday. The after-school installation involved the ladder-holding Mr (who refrained from eyelid batting throughout the entire process) and prompted neighbourly emails inquiring as to the rationale behind the ‘knitted jiggers in the tree’. Love it. Love silly. Love just-passing-by, walking-the-dog bemusement. The kid and I are plotting. This lady is one bad influence.
Make that second cuppa, mosey on over to Kirsty’s and see what all those creative, crafty types are playing at...
