Yarn bombs needed

Poor old Sammy Steele, freezing year after year in his NWMP uniform. I like the fluffy cover for his mountie hat and his padded shoulders. But he looks sad, frozen tears on his cheeks. Will anybody out there have some mercy on him and other characters in the streets of Whitehorse? Jack London and Robert Service look cold, too!

This request was inspired by the most spectacular campaign of Yarn Bomb Yukon to date: the dress-up of the old DC-3 at Whitehorse International Airport. For the story and pictures go to: Knitting for History
