My contribution to Plank 2013 is the striped piece on the pole to the left of the Town Map. I’m so happy to be part of this huge Yarnbomb!

I made an early start and got to Market Rasen for 10am. Amazingly no rain, wind, ice or snow, so spent a pleasant day sewing on all the knitted contributions (with only one coffee and cake break).
Took some pics so you can all enjoy the installation even if you can’t get to Market Rasen. Very many thanks to all those who contributed and special thanks to Alison who did the beautiful ‘plank’ pieces and stayed to help me put the rest up, a real star.
I’m not going to thank everyone by name as I know I’ll forget someone….but you are all very lovely and anytime you need some knitting done let me know! x
Wow – really impressive stuff! I need to have a look at all the photos to see what you’ve been up to. Hope you are well and have had a good start to 2013

I told my cousin about this – she lives nearby.
Lovely to see others enjoying it too, Carol must have knitted her fingers off, the place was covered and all of it was amazing work too, left so inspired. I went and added this to it on the first day of the festival http://frocktopus.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/imbolc-yarnbombing.html.
Loving the blog, inspirational.
