After months of knitting, a hardworking Australian craft group has created an impressive woollen garden.
The Griffith Natty Knitters are by all means used to big projects, as well as raising money for charity, but this latest scheme was certainly a challenge, Cootamundra Herald reports.
Inside the Stephen Ward rooms of their local library the group have now installed a knitted garden exhibition, helping to brighten up the space and show off their impeccable knitting and crocheting skills.
And it certainly created quite a spectacle, covering the shelves of books with an array of flora and fauna, entirely made from knitting and crochet.
Throughout the project the craft group kept records of the journey undertaken, logging the amount of time, effort and yarn involved in 'growing' this unique indoor garden.
Over 100 people helped to make the garden, using their knitting and crocheting skills, with people aged from five to 100 happy to lend a hand.
It took an estimated 1,850 hours to carry out all the knitting, crocheting and sewing and a whopping total of 25,855 grams of yarn were used to complete the project.
Beryl Goodger from the Natty Knitters told the newspaper that the garden was a highly enjoyable challenge, and was helped by the fact that the group is very close.
"We don't have a leader in our group. Everyone is just together working towards the same goal. One of the main reasons we sew and knit is for charity," Ms Goodger went on to say.
The Knitted Garden exhibition has so far attracted a large number of visitors and many positive reviews, with spectators suitably impressed with this feat of knitting and crochet work.
It can currently be seen in the library of the Cootamundra University of the Third Age, where visitors are encouraged to leave a charitable donation.
