Quote of the day: the mystery of the midnight knitter

This one comes from the NZ news website Stuff:

Someone is spinning quite a yarn over one American seaside town. An unknown person, dubbed The Midnight Knitter, is covering tree branches and lamp poles with little jumpers under cover of darkness.

Mayor of West Cape May in New Jersey, Pam Kaithern, says police are looking into the guerrilla crocheting, which technically is against the law because it is being done on public property without permission, The Press of Atlantic City reports.

The mayor and many residents admit they're enthralled by the rainbow of colours that have popped up.

Resident Susan Longacre takes a walk each morning in Wilbraham Park, where several tree branches and light poles have gotten the treatment. She thinks it's great.

Even those who aren't thrilled admit the yarn is better than spray-painted graffiti.
