Knitter bombers strike in Coffs

WINTER is but a memory yet someone clearly thinks exposed limbs are still in need of a little warmth.

That’s one possible explanation for the sudden appearance of leg warmers on a number of trees over the weekend.

The brightly coloured knitted adornments are gracing six of the trees in carpark at the end of Moonee Street but how they got there and who put them there is a mystery.

There is speculation that the appearance of the leg warmers could be linked to a renegade urban beautification project called ‘knitter bombing’.

Knitter bombers have claimed responsibility for similar recent activities in Sydney and on the Gold Coast where trees and power poles have been wrapped in brightly covered sleeves.

What is known is that the bombers responsible for the wraps in the Advocate carpark would have needed a ladder to finalise their installation sometime on Friday or Saturday night.

If you can shed any light on who’s behind the amusing activity email us at editorial@coffscoastadvocate.com.au.
