Category — knit leaves
With a fizz and a pop a couple nights ago, I was thinking about it’s a tree. It happens a lot.

And again, the leaves continue falling from the trees and my camera begs to be taken out.
I thought the soft knitted leaves for It’s a tree would be a nice contract for the crisp, dry leaves on the ground.
I can’t wait for more leaves to arrive so the pile of knitted leaves is as big as the real ones!

It’s a tree!
This is a collaborative community project, which means we need you.
The idea is this:
there are a few very tall lamp posts outside the New Dowse in Lower Hutt, and OutdoorKnit decided it would be a pretty fun idea to turn them into something different…trees!
What OutdoorKnit needs is lots of knitted, crochet or even sewn flowers, leaves and native birds to cover these ‘trees’. The best medium for this is acrylic – it wears better when the weather gets a bit grotty.
I’ve been knitting away over the past few weeks to get my pile of leaves and flowers ready. Watch this space for suggested patterns, installation dates and how to get your contribution added to the tree.
