Volunteers Cut Down Sweaters Off IC Trees

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Volunteers have cut down 135 colorful sweaters that had been wrapped around trees on Iowa City's pedestrian mall through the winter.
   People who made the sweaters were asked to cut them down during an official event Sunday. Organizers say any remaining sweaters will be taken down in the next few days.
   The event marked the end of the second annual Tree Huggers project. The public art project aims to brighten the downtown area during the winter. Knitters are given yarn as well as the measurements of trees.
   Last year, organizers turned the sweaters into blankets and shawls for a hospice. They're not sure what will happen with the sweaters this time.
