Hearts of wool for Valentine’s

First published in News

THE streets of Chipping Norton were subject to a Valentine’s Day ‘yarn bombing’ this week.

Red, woollen hearts were among the items filling the streets with love after the town’s mysterious yarn bomber decorated the area in fitting fashion.

Chipping Norton resident Suzie Brown, aged 43, was given a knitted heart when she came across the yarn bomber decorating a tree in the town centre.

She said: “We have been living here for five years and we had not seen her so it was nice to finally see her in action.

“My three-year-old son Joe and I have often walked around the town and seen her works of art hanging here, there and everywhere and it brings a smile to our faces.”

Yarn bombing is an American craze which is also known as urban knitting. It is a form of street art which involves decorating a public space with patterns made from knitted or crocheted yarn.
