olympic gold medal standard yarnbombing


"So Why are we going to Saltburn mummy?"


"to see the yarnbombing of course!"

"will there be ice cream?"

"knitted ice cream?"

"no, real ice cream!"


honestly you'd think the seaside was about fish and chips and sand and icecream.............
it is clearly a celebration of all things knitted and olympics.
I couldn't decide which I liked more, looking at the knitting, or listening to the reactions of all the people on the pier, which ranged from delight to sheer bemusement! As in the actual olympics I couldn't decide which event I liked best,  but this one is most like how I enjoyed the games!

  1. It looks really good considering it's been there a little while now and succumbing to coastal weather.... no red and white stripy photo's ?

  7. How fabulous that looks. I hope ice cream did feature eventually, although it looks more like a day for hot chips to me.
