In the week I went to a localish craft show with a couple of friends. I didn't intend spending anything at this show as I am going to The Knitting and Stitching Show at Ally Pally, in two weeks time and saving my pocket money for that. I had lots of time to look at the stands run by the Guilds and groups. This one was particularly stunning. 'Above and Below the Waves'.
This is a project organised by Alison and Ann Murray, in aid of the RNLI and their "Train One Save Many" campaign.
As you can see it is a knitted seashore, above and below the waterline. Over 2000 knitter help create this master piece. It took 5 months to sew together and I moan about sewing up one jumper.
The Project will be on show at venues next year, including:
The Brighton Centre 11th - 13th Feb 2011.
SECC Glasgow 3rd - 6th March 2011
NEC Birmingham 24th - 27th March 2011
Anintree Racecourse Liverpool 20th - 22nd May
Well worth a look.
