We nipped over to Louth to see the magnificent crochet lions yesterday. Mr H thought the children would be unimpressed but was happy to be proved wrong. I felt it was a small victory for crochet. They were truly 'awesome' as *J* suggested.
They are touring the country in a glass sided truck. To look at you'd think it was coarse scratch wool but we knew otherwise as we'd been able to touch a sample when we visited The Hubb in Sleaford the day before. 36 miles of Swaledale wool was used to make the lions I believe.
