I live in Midtown Memphis and I usually keep abreast  (what a stuffy word) of all things Midtown, but this golden-multi-colored-pom-pom stump, has me stumped. It sits at the corner of Higbee and Cooper street just across from Peabody Park.  I’m not sure if this is an Urban Art Commission project like Greely Myatt’s “Tin Quilts” downtown, or if this is the doing of the local Knit Mafia (I’ll have pictures later). I don’t remember seeing it a couple of days ago. I wonder who did this? Oh well, until I find out, I’ll just continue to admire it from the sidewalk, unlike today when I tried to cross rush hour traffic to get a close-up and almost got hit. Anything for the arts! Right?
