Fantastical Fruit & Flowers (Knitted?!) in Rowntree Park Café, York

If you’re a regular at Rowntree Park Café in York you may have noticed a few changes creeping in – a bowl of fruit, a vase of flowers or what about that enormous flower pot plant complete with ladybird.  Not particularly surprising you think - after all it is a café and it is in a park – but on closer inspection you’ll notice that they’re all knitted.

These are all part of the preparations for the Yarnbombing Event in Rowntree Park on Saturday 13 July 2013.  Feeling inspired?  Then get out your needles and knit, stitch something super or craft creatively!  Come on down to the café and have a look and while you’re there why not sample all the delicious goodies the café has to offer, then take a turn round the park – see the sculptures, tour the trees or take the kids to the play area to let off some steam.
