Iowa City Again Seeks Knitters For Tree Sweaters
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa City is looking for more volunteers to knit colorful sweaters that will be wrapped around trees as part of a downtown street art project.
The Tree Huggers Project decorated dozens of trees last year, and 135 trees have been selected for this year's effort.
The Iowa City Press-Citizen says this year's color palate will include cream and light gray, accented by eggplant, blue, orange and dark brown. The wool-acrylic yarn blend that will be used can stand up to the elements.
Volunteers must register online at http://bit.ly/1eDU1db. Yarn kits will be available at Home Ec. Workshop. Knitters have until Oct. 25 to finish their work and return the tree sweater to Home Ec.
