Payed a visit to Hackney Museum cos I’d heard a rumour about a fantastic bit of knitting…
Not that I’m particularly into knitting, but this was knitting with a difference and I do like models… The project, “knitting the common” involved several dedicated people putting together a scale model of their local common, and represent the common over 4 seasons.
The detail is unbelievable – even down to knitted figures in the children’s playground, and eggs in a bird’s nest in one of the knitted trees!
Photos below just don’t do it justice so worth a visit to the museum see the real thing.
There’s lot’s of other interesting stuff in the museum too, and you get a real sense of the local community past and present.
