A Luxembourg street is to be transformed into a woolly wonderland next week when a group of nutty knitters gives it the urban knitting treatment.

Boulevard John F. Kennedy, in Esch-sur-Alzette, is to be the first Luxembourg street to get stitched up by the group of 100 urban knitters.

Trees, signs, benches and even street lamps will be decorated with colourful knitted or crochet creations, designed to bring some cheer and a creative touch to the town centre.

The action is part of Sentiers Rouges, a cultural project based in the south of Luxembourg, which promotes open-air art. The initiative raises awareness about some 30 artistic creations in public spaces in trails belonging to Luxembourg rail firm CFL.

Sentiers Rouges is one of six projects being funded by Archipel asbl. Members of the public can catch the public knitting display from November 5. An official launch will be held at the Esch-sur-Alzette railway station at 2.15pm.
