Tree Gets 'Yarnbombed' Into Squid Using 4-Miles Of Yarn

This is the Magnolia tree that was transformed into a giant squid by sisters Jill Watt and Lorna using over four miles of yarn. Wait -- do trees even like playing dress up? Did Jill and Lorna at least ask it first? Because the last humanity needs right now is a battle with the Ents because these two are out there forcing trees into sweaters.

Jill reports that it took 20 hours on a sweater machine to make enough to cover the tree and that it took them 14 hours to install it, in 91°F weather!

Jesus -- adding a sweater to a tree in 91°F weather?! The Ents are totally gonna be coming for us now. And you know what? I'm going to fight on their side. "You're just hoping they win and you can score a living treehouse, aren't you?" Heck yeah! Plus I'm tired of humanity anyways. Give the trees a chance, that's my motto. "Whatever happened to, 'Screw this, I'm getting drunk?'" Ahahahhahaha, you got me.

Keep going for several more shots.

Thanks to Mary B, who once knit a pair of gloves for a maple tree but squirrels stole them.

    I thought they did this stuff overnight.. I mean bombing is something that sounds swift. But for that amount of detail they put into it, that is a job well done!

    I want to give it a hug.

  • Any story where the related is bear butts and sharkini is fine in my book.

    Best yarn bomb I have ever seen. The ones around my hood maybe looked good the first day or week they went up, but the "artists" have left them to rot and hang off signs and trees and fences for so long they look like garbage. Let's hope this squid yarn gets removed once it starts to decay.
