Tree Cozy

Treesweater

Please don't be confused: this is not a painted tree. No no no... we're not interested in something as boring as that (and neither is the tree). This is a tree sweater! Or, as Carol Hummel, its creator calls it... a Tree Cozy. The tree will be enjoying its new hand crocheted outfit for a period of two years at Cleveland Heights City Hall in Severance Town Center. Meanwhile I can't help but wonder... how? How did she slip this tree into its fancy new clothing?

We are all impressed. You, me and the tree.

I actually quite like it. I wonder if there is a market for this...?

Yes, yes, but the question is...does the tree feel tacky wearing fall colors in the summer?

If we're going for daft comments, how about: can you machine wash this or does it need dry cleaning?

I do like it though. Good find.

A nesting bird would have a heyday trying to pull that thing apart.

In crochet, she wouldn't have to slip it onto the tree; she could just crochet it on, working around the branches as she goes. But she will have to cut it to get it off.

Or as we Brits would say...a tree 'jumper'. :-)

Though admittedly that sounds like a term for someone with very long legs.
