We met at Pop Shop, an eclectic store with lots of fun, whimsical items and records (the old kind) in the back.
Leslie, the owner of Pop Shop, had been to a funeral of a family member sometime this past winter and saw a tree that had been "yarn-bombed". She posted in one of our group threads (on Ravelry) that she would like for us to all do something like this. The battle-cry was taken up and soon plans were being made to "yarn-bomb" the pillar in front of Leslie's shop.

I had an absolute blast! I wore my Julia. I blocked it Thursday afternoon and it was ready to wear by Friday.
Oh! Before I forget! I stole all but the last of these pictures from Nancy - she's an awesomely talented photographer.
*I'm not sure if this is the correct spelling for her name!
