What Kind Of City Is This?


Today I went to Bristol's M Shed, one of our smaller museums, where a large model city was on display. It was too large to get a full picture of it so I've had to zoom into different things.


You might ask what is so special about this model?
It is all knitted and crocheted by dozens of different people and the lady who displayed it was standing by the side of the display, busy knitting. It is a work in progress apparently. 
The whole city is called BRISWOOL.
I do lots of knitting but this would have taken me years to make.

What a creative endeavour. Perhaps you could contribute a small section, if it's ongoing? Clever name. :)

Thought I recognised the suspension bridge in the first photo. How clever.

That's amazing! I do a little knitting but I am so slow, it would take me a lifetime to make something like this. And I doubt it would look like anything people would recognize:)

Fantastic knitting. I'd love to see that.

Oh I'd love to see this. Clever name. Love the row houses particularly, we have those kind of houses here.

A huge amount of work. And yes, I'd love to be in your knitting club!
