To keep the poles from getting cold? Your guess is as good as ours...
Now someone sheds some light on this mystery. According to a story in the Monterery Herald, the cozies are the work of "a woman who calls herself Streetcolor to avoid attention from the authorities. And she's not selling a thing. She's 'yarnbombing,' spending at least 12 hours a day spinning yarn and knitting pole cozies. So far she has placed nearly 50 around the California towns of Berkeley, Oakland and Kensington."
"It's only going to be up for a while, and I think it enhances the area," she says. "It's just this momentary experience of it being more fun to be there."

There's a debate about whether this is art or graffiti. What do you think?
I like the name post graffiti or neo graffiti for what we do
