Is this the knitting Banksy?
Crocheted murals have been appearing around Lytham but the artist's identity remains secret
A mystery woman has been plonking her crocheted murals in Lytham – and wants to keep her identity a secret.
Her creations, known as ‘yarnbombs’, include ducklings, flowers, a windmill, and a Remembrance Day hat.
Linda Deacon, who sells wool to the stealthy stitcher, said: “It makes people smile.
“It’s a random act of kindness so the whole point is to remain anonymous.”
Linda said she’s often quizzed about the woman – but is remaining tight-lipped.
“She comes into my shop and we talk through ideas,” she said. “But I can’t reveal who she is.”
The woman doesn’t work alone, however.
She’s part of a national movement that promotes the apparent joy of yarn.
A Facebook group called ‘Random Acts of Crochet Kindness’ had more than 130,000 members yesterday.
Patterns, advice, and tutorials are offered on the public group.
