I shared this one on my Facebook group for knitters over the weekend, but I couldn’t resist sharing it with you all, too, because it’s just so cool.
The HMS Otway in Holbrook, NSW, is a real submarine that is now part of a park. Local yarn enthusiasts worked up an estimated 2,500 square meters of knitting (and crochet, I’ll bet) to turn the submarine yellow.
Why, you might ask? Changes in the local highway bypassed the town, so this arts project was undertaken to draw attention to the town and bring some tourists back.
What a great idea and a lovely project. It will be in place for two weeks before the knit pieces are donated to charity.
