Knitters in Canada say they are banding together to cover a DC-3 aircraft converted to use as a weather vane with knitted yarn next month.

Jessica Vellenga, one of the organizers of the "yarn-bombing" project in Whitehorse, Yukon, said knitters across North America have made donations toward the cause of covering the Erik Nielsen Whitehorse International Airport weather vane, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Monday.

"A lot of local knitters have participated," she said. "We've had donations from Ottawa, Toronto, Huntsville, Texas, Ohio, lots of different places.

"We had a great donation from a young lady who's 11 years old and she wanted to donate a little bit to the yarn bomb. She decided to help us meet our world record and we also had a lovely box of goods come from the National Arts Center," Vellenga said.

She said the attempt to create the world's largest airplane cozy is scheduled for Aug. 11.
