I have no idea how much media coverage this kindly art installation has received. But I'm glad I did spot the unveiling on Facebook. During lockdown I heard about this initiative to get folk back to knitting and also to encourage people to take up knitting. As I understand it knitting skills are slowly being lost and that would be such a tremendous shame.
The Prince's Foundation is at the heart of this idea and so Dumfries House put out a call to knitters all over the world to contribute. Knitted squares arrived from Italy, Belguim, Tasmania, United States, Canada and Derbyshire. The ones from Derbyshire were knitted by me! I can't spot them in the photo, but I'm pleased to think they are part of the installation and I believe the squares will be donated as blankets to the homeless this Winter.
