Liverpool’s Latest Lambanana

Well I certainly found something to keep me busy these last 3 months. I spotted this baby Lambanana at the Plaza Community Cinema in Crosby that was desperate for a makeover. The staff thought I was a prank caller but they agreed to let me take it on, wool was purchased and work commenced. Its been bit of a headache but I got there in the end. The staff were delighted when I delivered it this morning. I meet such amazing people through the work I do. The gardeners at Murray Edwards College, Ruth from You Can Too and now the Plaza staff are truly wonderful people and their appreciation is effusive and genuine. Here are some shots of the process and the finished piece. 600 2″ squares crocheted and knitted, 10 balls of wool, 3 months. One very happy and cosy lambanana, Liverpool’s iconic mascot. The cinema plan to use it as a collection box for their latest campaign.
