Can you believe this beautiful mermaid is knitted? She’s lovely.
Her name is Syrene and she was part of a huge installation at the Creative Stitches at the NEC helping to raise funds for the RNLI. It took 2,000 people to knit and you could even walk inside it. How brilliant is that?
It took my breathe away, it was so wonderful, there were knitted crabs, lobsters, Punch and Judy, fish, seagulls, pirates, everything.
But the mermaid was my very favourite
I wonder how long it would take me to knit a mermaid?
And where would I get a pattern from?
Perhaps, I should start with something a bit easier, like a piece of seaweed, especially as it looks like Nigel wants to help me!If you want to know more about “Above and Below the Sea” click on the link below
