Belper’s Christmas Yarn Bomb

Everything has been installed in the Memorial garden for Belper’s Christmas Yarn Bomb. It was a very cold task on Saturday and my fingers keep refusing to move. It does look good however and I hope all the knitters and crocheters feel proud of their work. I have already observed families, with children running round the garden looking for the different Christmas characters.

I was informed today that a knitting group from a town about seven miles away have visited and possibly feel inspired to have a go themselves. People have been very generous with their time to make items. One lady from a local village crocheted 135 Christmassy squares.

There are three fantastic Christmas wreathes with pom pom baubles.IMG_5547 IMG_5548 IMG_5549Six of the trees are now wearing special Christmas jumpers. The first tree has been fitted out with a silver, blue, pink and purple jumper decorated with white Christmas trees, many snowmen, stars and sparkly snowflakes in a variety of colours. Three angels circle above the tree.IMG_5520IMG_5519

Above some of the trees woolly stars of various sizes are hanging from the branches.IMG_5553IMG_5574IMG_5506IMG_5508IMG_5514Lastly I will mention that I am planning another Woollen Woods next year in Belper Parks wood. The things will go up on May 6th 2016 and will stay in the woods until May 15th. I will be particularly looking for woodland creatures and also have a plan to make part of the woods look as if it is under the sea. Please contact via this blog if you would like to help.
