Hey yarnbombers! Here’s an idea.
If you absolutely must clothe trees, telephone poles, and other structures in knitted items that will become raggedy and unappealing within the week, try this instead:
Knit utilitarian items that can be easily removed (say, with buttons). For example, you could wrap a tree in an actual blanket. Do this in areas heavily populated by homeless people, so they can remove the item and, yknow…use it.
Then you’ll temporarily beautify a structure and provide warmth to people who need it!
Because let me tell you, there are few things more depressing than walking through a city and seeing inanimate objects with better clothes than the actual, living human beings walking around the area.
