Morgantown Knitting Project Underway for Valentine's Day

Posted: Updated:
MORGANTOWN -

About 20 local knitters and crocheters are working on a Valentine's Day surprise for the Morgantown community.

It's an art installation project for the downtown area. The scarves are also part of the Morgantown's 'Year of the Tree,' which will focus attention on trees in the area.

"There's been a movement for several years of using knitting a kinder gentler form of graffiti to beautify areas," said Judith Kierig, a Morgantown resident and organizer of the 'Year of the Tree'. "It just seemed like this was a natural fit with 'Year of the Tree' here in Morgantown this year."

Keep your eye out for the decorations on Valentine's Day.
