Knit for the River installed

After months of knitting endeavour by the people of Cambridge to create hundreds of knitted squares, a dry day in November heralded their installation into the river water, affixed onto coir rolls that support the regeneration of the river bank. A small group of knitters worked to prepare the knitting, ensuring it was firmly fixed onto the coir, which was then installed by a team of people from the Cambridge City Council biodiversity team. The incredible efforts of the knitted who came from ten of the city wards meant that there were more knitted squares than was needed and those left behind will be fashioned into a blanket to be given to charity.

 

A short video of the installation can be seen here.
