There is an island in the middle of the North Atlantic, roughly halfway between Norway and Iceland which now hosts an unusual tourist attraction: Known as 'the knitted ston', this yarn bombed rock was inspired by a local legend about a 'troll woman' who lived in a cave.
The rock is located on Sandoy Island, the first of the five southern islands that make up the Faroe islands chain.
In 2013, a group of local women got together to cover the rock with a knitted woman. The story of this project is beautifully covered in this short film.
I love the way these ladies had so much fun!
