Flowers of the Sea

Check out these fantastic knitted sea anemones, submitted by Cathy Merriman, owner of the Loop Craft Cafe in Halifax! The Loop will be hosting our seafloor display in their very aquarium-esque shop window on historic Barrington Street. (Check out more photos, some knitting patterns, and her blog entry on the Stitchin Fish project here.)

Known as the "flower of the sea", the seductive anemone is actually a carnivorous animal, using stinging tentacles to capture and kill its prey. They are closely related to jellyfish, and appear in myriad colours and forms across the world's oceans. You can learn more on Wikipedia, and National Geographic.

Keep the creatures coming, folks!
