I have just discovered rather belatedly that what I saw in Peel recently was called "yarn bombing."

"Yarn bombing, yarnbombing, yarn storming, guerrilla knitting, kniffiti, urban knitting or graffiti knitting is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colourful displays of knitted or crocheted yarn or fibre rather than paint or chalk."

There are some amazing pics on this link,

Maybe we should creep up in the night and cheer up the skip?

Think it would take more than that ! ;)

Re "Perhaps Ollerton can fashion one of his childish clay models into a Munro bust".

No, i'm not a sculptor, otherwise believe me I would. Childish clay models? You should try telling that to those who pay a lot of money to buy my work.
