Yes, that's right! Someone on the Shetalnd island of Burra has knitted a fence using curtain poles and string grin. It's lovely.

I think 'guerrila knitting' is the latest craze and such fun. I have seen bits of it in various places including the Eden Project. The wardrobe department at Birmingham Royal Ballet knitted an outfit for the bull in the bull ring and then someone has done a union flag one too. I'd love to have a go round here sometime.

That is beautiful indeed.
If it was around here someone would have knicked it by now!
