When I did my List of 35 on my 35th, one of the tasks / goals I set for myself was to knit a square for Christchurch which I saw on this blog. On the Facebook group it says:
The Christchurch earthquakes have really rocked the Port Hills. To protect us from more rock fall, massive shipping containers are now lining the Sumner and Redcliffs strreets. It is necessary however not a beautiful sight, but we can change it!
Container Love is about prettying up these metal giant boxes.
The idea is to turn the unpleasant look of the containers into a positive feature for people to enjoy and comment on.
The present project is a GIANT CONTAINER COSY made entirely out of knitted or crocheted squares
I WILL NEED: 30cm by 30cm KNITTED OR CROCHETED SQUARES
TYPE OF WOOL: DOES NOT MATTER, BUT BOLD AND COLOURFUL IS BEST
PATTERN: ANY WILL DO
WHERE TO SEND TO
email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will give you my postal address, I can also pick up Christchurch and Lyttelton squares.
And here is my creation:
So tomorrow I will be sending this off. So now I only have 34 more tasks / goals to go!
