Melissa Yormac sews another flat knitted piece around the fence as part of a yarn bombing event at mile five of the Kennebec River Rail Trail on Saturday morning in Farmingdale.
They were wrapping the fence and a light pole in knitted fabric. It will be reused next year or washed and assembled into blankets for the Kennebec Valley Humane Society shelter.
The art installation was organized by Nina Tilander, owner of a new yarn store in town called Hook, Yarn and Stitcher.
“We’re hoping that this makes people smile when they walk by,” Tilander said. She said that pieces were done by knitting groups at the Cohen Center in Hallowell and another in China Village. She added that they’d like to make it an annual event.
