A small town in New Jersey is awakening to find their town covered in carefully knitted sleeves, covering entire portions of trees, lamp posts, payphone cords, whatever. This is my favorite kind of vandalism. And, according to the police and the mayor, “vandalism” is what it is. They’re looking for this “Midnight Knitter” (who, according to what is apparently their website, call themselves “Salty Knits”), but they don’t seem angry about it: the Mayor has referred to it as “fun” and “a mystery”.
The people of West Cape May, NJ, seem to to like it. It’s definitely better than spray paint, I’d say.
I hope they don’t get into too much trouble for something that’s made so many people smile.
