Suzanne writes over at her blog Weekend Notes about the village of Llwyngwril and its 500 inhabitants who apparently really like to knit, as there are yarn bomb and knitting installations adorning the town:
After relocating to North Wales in 2015, I was casually checking out my local region one day when I entered an alternative universe. I’m not even kidding. On the way back from the beach in Tywyn, I drove through a village that was, well…knitted.
I haven’t been drinking; it really does exist and it’s smack bang in the middle of Gwynedd. Sitting on the Cambrian Coast, within Snowdonia National Park, Llwyngwril is home to around 500 residents. And these residents know what they’re doing with knitting needles and wool.
In order to stop traffic (quite literally) and encourage people to visit, as well as raise funding for their local community centre, a group of very talented and creative individuals took to Yarn Bombing.
