Couldn't you just add velcro to the ends and quick snap it together? Or snaps?

We were just discussing this at craft club last night! I swear, the Craftsters sometimes read my mind  Grin

Our general consensus was it was really cool, as long as you removed it yourself (and not make the city or something pay for it) before it was soggy and trashed.

I love the idea of tree sweater art!  Grin

I think knitting graffiti is wonderful, I know my heart smiled every time I saw the sleeve.

Yup, that's pretty much my motivation for doing knit graffiti!  That plus it adds a little bit of love to abandoned urban areas, basically shows that someone has been to that area and cares about it.  In terms of the sogginess factor, I've been thinking about getting all-natural animal or bamboo fiber yarns so that the cozy will basically felt and then eventually bio-degrade right on the tree or rail or whatever.

Oh, and here are some photos of my first graffiti... check 'em out at Howard St. and North Ave. in Baltimore City!! (more discussion of the photos and process at my blog-)



And a close-up from another angle:


City love!

I  am in love with this idea.  I have already started a bit.  I am not sure how well it will go over in my small town.  I guess we will see. I will take pics!
