In my spare time this winter, I've been knitting neckties for large conifer trees. The smaller trees are happy enough with scarves and the stop sign/street sign is content with a body stocking, but the big firs and cedars are a problem, primarily because they are so big around. The ones in our front yard are 4-5 feet in circumference (update: I mean 5 feet in diameter, which is about 17 feet in circumference), which means that to wrap
Furthermore, because it isn't surrounding the tree (as the scarves do), I can leave them up all the time. Fortunately, Ed is happy to climb 18 feet up on the ladder to do the dressing.
