When darkness falls, the mystery knitter takes to the streets of the shore town and covers tree branches and lampposts with little sweaters.
Yes, you read that right, little sweaters.
Although residents and the town’s mayor agree that the colorful patterns are captivating and better than graffiti, the handiwork is illegal.
“We don’t know who it is,” Mayor Pam Kaithern told The Press. “Technically, they shouldn’t be doing it. The police are asking about it, but it’s fun and it’s a mystery.”
The town’s main concern? That when the yarn becomes faded, the cozy creations be taken down.
Wow, if this is West Cape May’s most pressing unsolved mystery, we’re thinking it’s time to move there.
