An Irish Hungarian tree sock

I took the above photo of a tree sock on Larchmere Boulevard in August 2010. Who wouldn't take a photo of a tree sock? Who wouldn't love the sort of neighborhood that puts socks on their trees?

Your humble hostess will be returning to the eclectic neighborhood tomorrow to join bevy of writers who will make up Author Alley (sponsored by Loganberry Books) as part of the neighborhood's annual street fair, the Larchmere Festival.

Come on by pick up a copy of the Irish Hungarian Guide to the Domestic Arts, which I will happily sign. Or just come by and say hello, then enjoy a host of wonderful shops, sales and cafes. Art, music and dance? Yup, we've got that.

Whether or not the tree sock will still be there is anyone's guess, but I can promise you this: a fun event in a fun neighborhood with fun people.

It's called yarn bombing, EOB, and I love it.

Are they used socks? Where is a tree's foot?

one of the senior centers where i teach yoga has yarn bombed most of the sign posts, handrail, and some of the smaller trees in the park. they also made a huge expanse that is now on the side of an overpass bridge!
i love it, too.

Will they have smelt?

Have a great day there, tomorrow, Erin.

Erin, worry not...The New York Times will mention sock-bombing in its Sunday edition this morning, and all the hipsters will move on to the next best new thing. My prediction is either Lawn-Darts or wearing all-pastel colors...or bike shorts (shudder, shudder, shudder...)
