GUERILLA knitters have decorated a foot bridge at the Union Canal with wool in a dawn yarn-bombing operation.

The Leamington Lift Bridge at Fountainbridge was festooned with colourful woolen creations including a yarn depiction of Sponge Bob Squarepants.

This is not the first time the yarn-bombing craze has hit Edinburgh. In 2012 a yarn-bomber struck Princes Street leaving a crocheted comment “Tramway to Hell” on the barriers surrounding roadworks.
