Thirsk yarn-Bombed for the Tour de Yorkshire

I’ve known about the proposed yarn-bombing of our fabulous town for a while but nothing could have prepared any of us for the amazing display that greeted us this morning. Taylor and I set off early for a walk around town, up to Norby and beyond and…. wow.

300+ volunteers have been stitching away in secret for months and haven’t they done a wonderful job? When the Tour de Yorkshire racers come through Thirsk on Sunday 1st May they will have a lot to smile about. Needless to say there are many proud Thirsk-ites today!

These are just a few photos we took this morning (there were over 100). If you want to see more hop over to my Facebook if we are connected or have a look at the Thirsk Yarnbomber Visitor’s Facebook Page.

Our yarn bombers really have done us proud!

  1. Hear! Hear!…….What an absolutely fantastic display for the Tour de Yorkshire. I cannot begin to imagine how many hours of knitting and crocheting there have been, let alone the planning hours and then the installation time. What fun you all must have had. Please don’t take them all down for a while………… I want other people to see all your hard work. Well done to all involved.
