Big Tree in Front of Library Decorated

On Saturday, June 13, 2015 which was World Wide Knit in Public Day, over 30 knitters and crocheters gathered on the grounds of the Library and made attractive and fun decorations for the big tree on the edge of our Atwater Avenue lawn.

Passersby are now admiring the hand-made yarn flowers and leaves that are fastened to a yarn vine around the large tree trunk.  There’s even a colourful caterpillar made of yarn and beads!

Master knitter Arlene Lund volunteered to lead this yarn bombing project, and she said it was a “great experience.”
