Hide yer women, hide yer kids. Fred, AKA Mr. Rogers, HAS BEEN BOMBED.
Yarn bombed, that is. (Though not by me.)
I was on my way to the Pirates’ Game this weekend, walking along the River, when I spotted Fred in a lovely red crocheted sweater. Too cool. (Although when I saw it, the sweater looked more like a poncho with a front zipper… What happened to the sleeves?)
Turns out the sweater was designed by Alicia Kachmar, a Pittsburgh crocheter and artist. You can read more about the sweater construction here on her blog.
If you happen to be near Heinz Field or PNC in the next weeks, you should stop by and see Freddy for yourself. Man, how I love Pittsburgh.
