Bantry has been yarn bombed and it looks lovely! The kids found it so exciting to see the benches, anchor and poles all transformed by beautifully colourful knitting and crochet work. They were especially impressed that even the ‘angry donkey’ got a hat and scarf.
Yarn bombing, also known as guerrilla knitting or graffiti knitting, is a non permanent (although it would be lovely if it was permanent) way of creative expression. It is a wonderful way to reclaim an impersonal or public space and to project, care, colour and inspiration into the community.
Bantry has been yarn bombed by ‘The Rabbit Hole Project’ – find them on facebook here . The Rabbit Hole Project and its yarnies met every Tuesday evening at Ma Murphys where they knitted up a storm. They were sponsored by a few local businesses and we hope to see more and more creative expression across the town. Well done to all involved.
