It’s been great to have the chance to visit a number of the RePlace Orkney 2012 installation sites as winter turns to spring (we hope!).

As expected, exposure to the weather has meant some colour fading.  But it is remarkable how well the knitting is looking – wool is a great survivor. And thank you to everyone in the knitting team who made the work in the first place.

On the most recent page of the blog there is more of an update of the installations it’s been possible to visit during Hegasaer’s current visit to Orkney.
