Call Box Yarn Art

On a pretty frigid walk to a friend's house yesterday I spotted a neat sight. Hats, scarves and more were apparently knit FOR the call box characters at the intersection of Mt Pleasant Street and Park Road NW. This is awesome! My old roommate knit a scarf for me years ago, which I still use, so I appreciate getting a warm piece of handmade goodness from someone who cares.

But this tops anything I've ever owned. They're so TINY. The old fire and police call boxes were incorporated into a citywide project named Arts on Call about 5 years ago. They feature various scenes relative to DC history in each respective neighborhood. Art inspires art!
