Help Your Tree Survive Winter With a Treesweater


Talk about creative and artistic! This cute story came from a knitting blog and, quite simply, made us smile.

Remember how I said that once I'd had the idea to make a company logo dog sweater, I couldn't NOT do it? I had another one of those tonight. Outside our building is a sorry little sidewalk tree. At the height of summer, it had about five leaves. A dead glowstick has been dangling from its branches for three months. Tonight while I was out on a smoke break, I looked at the tree and thought, "Man, that is one sad tree. It looks cold and wet and pathetic. It needs a sweater!" I went home and whipped one up, it only took an hour and a half to knit. Then another fifteen minutes or so, standing outside in the cold at half past midnight, stitching it up.

Check out Erika's blog for the overwhelming response from her readers (and the media). You can even find the sweater pattern to knit a treesweater for your own little tree-in-need.
