WEST CAPE MAY— Someone is spinning quite a yarn over this shore town.
Dubbed "The Midnight Knitter" by residents, someone is covering tree branches and lamp poles with little sweaters under cover of darkness.
Mayor Pam Kaithern said police are looking into the guerrilla crocheting, which technically is against the law because it is being done on public property without permission.
The mayor and many residents admit they're enthralled by the rainbow of colors that has popped up.
Resident Susan Longacre said she takes a walk each morning in Wilbraham Park, where several tree branches and light poles have gotten the treatment. She told the newspaper she thinks it's great.
Even those who are not thrilled admit the yarn is better than spray-painted graffiti.
