A couple of my favourite competitors in the Saltburn Pier Knitted Olympics.
I prefer V1 as a photograph; but V2 gives an idea of the size of this installation, the amount of creativity and effort involved, and the amount of innocent pleasure that it has given people. (Check out the synchronised swimmers' legs that the lady is examining!)
Since our visit, the work has apparently been vandalised, figures have been cut off and slashed open. I find this desperately sad, and quite incomprehensible.
Thanks for looking,
