Lydiate – It’s called ‘Yarn Bombing’ so I’m told

Yarn Bombing – ‘the action or activity of covering objects or structures in public places with decorative knitted or crotcheted material, as a form of street art’

If you live in Lydiate you may have noticed this:-

As seen on Southport Road, Lydiate

I spotted this on a recently refurbished (by Lydiate in Flower Volunteers) street bench next to a bus shelter. Across the road in the beautifully maintained gardens adjacent to the Nedens Lane junction a tree has also aquired a colourful addition made the same way.

I mentioned this to my daughter and it was she that told me it is called yarn bombing. Well I quite like it, although I have no idea who is doing it.
