Container Love

There’s a new project in town – Container Love!

Shipping containers are being used in the Christchurch suburbs of Sumner and Redcliffs to prevent rocks falling into the streets below the hillsides, which is still happening due to the ongoing earthquakes and aftershocks. But shipping containers are butt-ugly. SO… an enterprising and crafty soul (Christine Reitze) has put the word out for fellow knitters/crocheters to whip up 30×30 cm squares that will be stitched together to form GIANT CONTAINER COSIES!

How cool is that.

It’s the perfect destashing project. Those containers are BIG, they’ll be there for a long time, and they’re going to need a whole lotta covering. If you’d like to help, click the Container Love link above or the image below for more info and details. The more the merrier!
