Surprise!

In a recent post I showed some swatches of a secret project we were knitting, and now it's time for the great reveal!

We knitted a tree!

Kate and I have loved looking at pictures of 'knit graffiti' projects, and since we've never seen anything like it around our area, we really wanted to do it ourselves.  What better time than in the spring, when the trees are starting to grow buds and everything is fresh and new again?

It was actually relaxing to knit these swatches.  You can take them anywhere, try new stitches, clear your stash, and it's finished quickly!  We got the girls from our knitting group involved, and I love that the tree represents our collaboration.  Even though we only 'yarn bombed' my front yard, it still felt sneaky sewing a sweater on a tree in the middle of the night!

I'm the lucky one who gets to see this every time I look out my window!  We hope the bright colors and whimsical display encourage people as they pass by.  We want them to feel inspired to pursue whatever creative interests they have and share it with the community.
