A couple of weeks ago I went to the Natural History Museum in Washington, DC, to see the Crochet Coral Reef. I knew it would be cool, but it exceeded my expectations. There was just so much to look at! There was a crocheter and a zoologist at the exhibition that you could talk to, and there were different sections that drew attention to the different aspects and issues surrounding ocean ecology. One section was completely crocheted from plarn, yarn reclaimed from plastic bags, to remind us of how much of our garbage ends up in the ocean. Check out some photos!
