It may have started out with just a pair of wings and angel hair (presumably to advertise the current show of My Three Angels, November 22 to December 3). Until the knitting guerillas struck and adorned him with a woolen overcoat, hat, legwarmers and more. Complete with a knitted picnic in the garden below. All this addition to attract you to the upcoming Lopdell Craft Market “Make and Cake” on Sunday (27 November, 9-3).

More about Henry Atkinson here and here. And might be right in thinking that this is too warm for the advanced spring, night temperatures are still going down to 11 degrees (daytime can go into low 20s).

  1. Nice collection. It looks like people dressed the statue with things they no longer wanted.

  2. He doesn’t look that happy, but there you go.
