    Here comes a candle to light you to bed,

    And here comes a chopper to chop off your head

    Work of one person, or is there a chapter of Raging Grannies in Edinburgh? ‘OK, ladies, each of you needs to bring a square to our next meeting….’

       I don’t know about Scotland, but in the U.S. the average age for a knitter has dropped over the last two decades below the age group of ‘granny’. The yarn bomber(s) could easily be under thirty.

    Now that it’s delightfully spelled out in yarn, I’d kind of like to take the Tramway to Hell.

    Cory just set off all sorts of alarms at the NSA by using bomb and transit in the same sentence.

    Do people not like trams, or is it just about the incompetent construction?  It a tram a trolly or a small bus or something?

      The trams have become a political football with repeated attempts to stop the project or to cut it back. It will link the airport with the city centre, but exactly where in the city has been changed several times – and the cost keeps rising. Although trams have been successfully brought back in several British cities, they keep coming in horribly over budget.

      As for what are trams – they’re a light railway running on city streets.

        Much thanks.  I was worried there was some translation I was missing because the yarn bombing demo in the USA are probably overwhelmingly pro-mass transit.  Including light-rail.

        Do people still want the transit?
