Previously, a 6 foot long scarf, complete with attached books, was left outside the library, and had a note attached signed 'the Yarn Junki' - but with no clue as to the identity of the knitter.

Other scarves with different designs also appeared around the town. Three teddy bears had a tea party on the town’s Marine Parade picnic area. There was also a display put together for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, to which a naked Prince Harry doll was just added.

This scarf has all the different olympic athletes portrayed and is really quite impressive!

Hi Annie,

Welcome to Knitting & Crocheting.   It's good to see you here.  Do you knit, crochet or both?

Thank you for posting about that scarf...that is very neat.  Hard to imagine how long it took someone to do that.
