many other bollards and bushes

The blue and yellow knitting on the signpost in the last picture was made by Marie of A Sewing Odyssey...head over to her blog for more pictures and another write up of the Leicester Yarn Bombing. Also check out the Twitter hashtag #cheekyknitting to read people's reactions. We made it into the local paper too....

I was really pleased to be involved in this, it was a totally fun experience. It was great to see everyone come together for a common purpose to spread some cheer, and the public reaction around the city was overwhelmingly positive. I really felt that it brought a little sense of community to the city - a great start to the comedy festival!
Has your city ever been yarn bombed? I'd love to see and hear about other examples of this around the world!
