Taste of Iceland brought yarn-storming fanatic Linda Björk Eiríksdóttir all the way from trendy Reykjavík to Denver, to help local knitters and other fiber-graffitists beautify the trees in Civic Center Park with knitted blocks and squares and toadstools, all on a lovely Saturday afternoon. Photographer Danielle Lirette snapped these images of the event and more.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
