Yarn bombing on the Great Harbour Way

The recent chilly weather has obviously concerned some of his admirers, so on a recent morning he was sporting a fine pair of knitted bathing trunks and a woolly hat, courtesy of One Yarn Bandits, a group of “yarn bombers” who crochet and knit additions to public objects.
