Molly Malone's Makeover

Last week while I was running all over Dublin like a chicken with my head cut off, I spotted this interesting new addition to the iconic Molly Malone statue at the bottom of Grafton Street.


A more conventionally-minded knitter might have given poor Molly herself a little shrug or cardigan, but this guerrilla knitter/crocheter chose to cover Molly's barrow wheel instead in a striking neon pink.


If you look closely, you can see that the wheel cover is made up of several individual pieces that have been linked together with tiny little cable ties. Still, having seen a bunch of knitted scarfs going up around the telephone poles of Cork a few years ago, this is a pretty impressive feat.

  3. Imaginative but imagine having the time to knit something like that! I'm obviously doing something wrong.

    1. Maybe there was more than one person working on it?!
