Artist Inger Lena Gåsemyr got the wole village together to knit legwarmers for 18 trees in one of the streets in Eidsfjord. The project Graknitty is thought to bring people closer together and initiate communication, as well as using available resources and keep knitting alive as a craft. Gåsemyr has earlier been involved in a similar project in Chicaco, called Knit it.
“We no longer need speedbumps. The cars pass by in 20-30 km/h” says county council representative Lisbeth Bygstad according to the Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.
Tree leg warmer. Now that’s something for the Ravelry queues.
