But it still makes me smile.
First published in December 2005, it’s still up at Red Shirt Knitting. Seattle yarn artist Erika’s story is posted, as is a chronological progression of photos and events since the original “fitting”.
She actually got some pretty funny tree questions/comments about potential girdling, the possibility of damage from moisture buildup (I like her response “What are YOUR sweaters made from…neoprene?”), etc.
Tortured urban tree examples abound: poorly planted, pitifully pruned, and other horrors. I think Miss Erika should get some kind of award for this public display of [tree] affection.
