Colourful ‘yarn bombed’ coat for Norfolk village sign

Wrapped up in a woolly jumper and a matching hat, this lamb is ready for the autumnal weather after receiving a colourful coat as a result of growing craze known as yarn bombing.

The bright knitted outfit was placed on the lamb, which forms part of East Harling's village sign, as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, but was not removed at the end of the celebrations.

Parish council chairman Philip Edge said the whole village was covered with knitted creations for the Jubilee and two or three colourful creations were left behind.

A sign post at the entrance to the village has also been the victim of 'guerrilla knitting', which aims to brighten up public spaces.

The lamb on the village sign is a symbol of East Harling's famous sheep markets, which ended in the early 20th century.
