I love this story! Over 100 volunteers in a small town decided to knit all the buildings and landmarks of the city of Bristol in England. Among other things, the city is known for its suspension bridge, which opened in 1864 and was designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The knitters and crocheters incorporated churches, ships, cranes, traffic jams and even a crocodile which was reported to be on the loose in the city earlier this year.
It's such a colourful, clever and interesting piece of art - or is it a sculpture? I would imagine that if your hobby is knitting, this would have been a really fun thing to do.
You can find more of the story here. I'm sure there are people out there asking why? Surely the only answer is why not?.
