As the temperature in Luxembourg drops, it is not just the people who are wrapping up warm – trees and bins are getting the same treatment thanks to a group of nutty knitters.

On Monday evening, the guerrilla knitters stitched up their local park in Lorentzweiler, knitting colourful woollen cosies for anything from trees to park benches.

The crafty little scheme or “Woll project” (wool project) was devised as part of a knitting class led by Nadia Back-Weber. Visitors can check out the colourful result on Sunday, May 18, when the area hosts a Spring Festival.
