The town's gone knitting mad

There's a Jazz Festival in Fishguard this weekend and someone came up with the idea of a Knitting Jazz to go with it. The knitters must have been at it for MONTHS because the stuff is absolutely EVERYWHERE - in shop windows, wrapped around trees and lamp-posts. It's just the thing to make everyone smile. Brilliant idea, whoever thought of it.

Yep thats the one    They were going to try and do a secret bomb but security vetoed that. Instead they were told to contact the powers to be - who said go ahead    That is the result
