I know Christmas is long past, but being that it’s Epiphany today I figure we have one last chance to talk about the holidays, and in that spirit I bring you this story about the time Tim Horton’s took over a restaurant in Canada and knit everything in sight.
Fort Frances, Ontario, is one of the coldest places in Canada, but Tim Horton’s warmed it up one day with fully knit booths and a giant scarf and hat on the top of the building.
Residents were lured to the shop with red yarn running around town and other yarn bombed things like trees and fire hydrants. They also provided residents with free coffee for a day.
The video is pretty darn cute, and just might make your holiday spirit last a little longer.
The knit restaurant was part of a campaign called Warm Wishes, and Tim Horton’s, along with Toronto yarn shop Lettuce Knit, has been collecting knit hats and scarves to be donated to people in need.
