'Midnight Knitter' Wanted In N.J. Shore Town
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne, with news of what you might call a cozy crime wave.
Someone in West Cape May, New Jersey has been covering bare branches, tree trunks and lampposts with brightly colored little scarves and sweaters. Police are on the lookout for the perpetrator, dubbed The Midnight Knitter by a local paper, because it is technically a kind of graffiti. Some residents are complaining, though most have warmed to the stealth stitch work. Either way, it's a pretty good yarn.
It's MORNING EDITION.
