Knitted coral reef

These three old navigational buoys stand about ten feet tall and decorate the dock wall of Sunderland marina. Today when we passed by we found that someone had knitted a gigantic woolly cosy for one of them, decorated with knitted octopus and tropical reef marine life.

This artwork was made by a brilliant group of knitters and stitchers called Materialistics. You find out more their work on their web site 

The artwork was installed for the recent Tall Ships Race and is due to be removed on Wednesday 8th. August.
