Yarn bombing and Esslemont & Macintosh

“Yarn bombing is a type of graffiti or street art that employs colorful displays of knitted or crocheted cloth rather than paint or chalk.”

I like.

In other news, Jamie Oliver is apparently planning to open an Italian restaurant across two floors of the Esslemont & Macintosh building on Union Street in Aberdeen. Ever since I watched his TED Talk video about fast food regulation, the man has become one of my idols. What a shame I’ll have graduated and disappeared from these grey shores.

The building in question has been boarded up since the department store within went bust and was shut down just before I arrived at uni. It, like the rest of the main street of Aberdeen could do with the business some one like Oliver could bring to the area.
