'Yarn bombers' hit Courtenay Place tripod
Graffiti taggers now widespread in capital
As winter's chill descends on the capital, Wellingtonians are bundling up to keep warm - and one famous Wellington icon has joined the movement involuntarily.
The tripod statue at the corner of Courtenay Place and Cambridge Terrace has been given colourful woollen leg warmers by an unknown knitter.
What do you think of the leg warmers? Tacky or fun?

The OutdoorKnit blog has planned an expedition for this Saturday in Petone, where they plan to give the lamp posts "a bit of a woolly cuddle".
The group has also recently been responsible for a "warm fuzzies" jumper on a seat at Civic Square, and a woollen hand rail cover outside the Hutt City Library.
Another well-known landmark is the "You are doing OK" tag on the fence of an empty lot on Buckle Street.
The tripod sculpture was officially opened by Mayor Kerry Prendergast on November 17, 2005. It was created by Weta Workshop using wood, bronze and other materials as a tribute to the film industry in Wellington.
