The project is supported by Aardman Animations (together with the UK Hand Knitting Association, Simply Knitting magazine and ICHF exhibitions) and the star of the piece is Aardman's own ovine knitter, Shaun the Sheep.
The longer we looked, the more details we spotted - the robin in the tree, the pop bottle knitted from clear plastic, the chicks fighting over a worm, Shaun's iPod! It was fantastic - a real labour of love by hundreds of knitters.
It continues its tour in March and April, visiting Glasgow, Birmingham and Liverpool.
