PHANTOM KNITTER CLOTHES US TOWN AT MIDNIGHT
In a story that has restored my faith in the creative power of human eccentricity the inhabitants of West Cape may, New Jersey have been baffled by the appearance of little knitted jumpers on trees and lamp posts around the town during the night.
Dubbed the ‘Midnight Knitter’ the mysterious culprit is now the focus of an investigation. It appears that his woolly handiwork is technically against the law as it is being done on public property without permission. However many residents, including mayor Pam Kaithern are quite taken by the random needlework.
Local resident, Susan Longacre who walks regularly through Wilbraham Park, a favourite target for the Midnight Knitter said, ‘I think it’s wonderful.’
However weekend homeowner mark Lucas is not so enamoured with the nocturnal pearling and said, 'I don't think it's appropriate... It's a public space and people should not be able to go in and do what they want to do.'
Personally I think that anyone who is willing to knit so many new Jerseys in New Jersey deserves recognition for a job well done.
