Night Stocking at City Hall

Monday, March 4, 2013

With the notion of adding a little more color and whimsy to the community, the anonymous Night Stockers have struck again in Greencastle, pulling off perhaps their largest and most time-consuming endeavor yet in yarn bombing one of the trees along the Washington Street side of City Hall. The effort took two hours and a crew of 10 -- ranging in age from 10 to "ageless" -- to attach the colorful crocheted yarn work to the tree. The Night Stockers describe themselves as "a loosely knit (or crocheted) group of people who consider it an honor to put a little more color and whimsy into our community." Previous night stocking creations have emerged overnight at times in trees at Robe-Ann Park, around the courthouse square, outside the Putnam County Public Library and in front of the new Eli's Books DePauw bookstore among other locations.

  • This recent Night Stockers is both colorful and whimisical. Just a reminder, after being out in the weather, the stockers lose their bright color and become rather tattered and worn. Please remove them when they have outlived their use.
