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!
