Preston Guild knitted diamonds installation

So ... we sewed together a good few hundred knitted diamonds - but why?

Well, Avenham and Miller Parks in Preston were to be the hub of many events for the 2012 Preston Guild celebrations, and the council paid for Rachael to bring together this particular project to create knitted "cosies" for some concrete planters in Avenham Park.

So after the diamonds were sewn together into the correct shapes, the resulting "skirts" were hand sewn on to the planters up the steps. They looked very effective and I saw many people admiring them.

Judge for yourself!

naked planters!

my friend knitted a lovely cross detail on hers

my textured blues were across from my friend's at the foot of the steps by happy coincidence:)

and here it is on a planter

This was a fascinating project to be involved with, we really enjoyed the experience:)
