Knit graffiti

Just some of the knitted embellishments we spotted around Launceston yesterday, I am sure there are plenty more that we missed too. The pillars of the Town Hall were impressive but paled compared to the knitting room. This was mind blowing. An entire house and it's contents and people/animals knitted . This project began in 2003 and included around 500 nursing home residents. You can read more about it here. If you can get to see it then please do so as it is sight to be seen. You are not allowed to touch the exhibit or take photos, but they do sell some postcards that can be seen in the collage below.
