The Fabulous Story of Stitch London (formerly Stitch and Bitch London)

  • UK SnB Blanket: What to do : DEADLINE EXTENDED to 8th NOVEMBER 2007

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 24, 2007

    As you may or may not know S&B London are currently running a project to knit a huge and fabulous UK SnB Blanket to show the world how many knitting group the UK is home to, and to show off at UK SnB Day in November.

    The S&B London Stitchettes have been hard at work planning and designing and have come up with a plan.

    What we need from your knitting group are:

    • 2x knitted or crocheted squares (or a bit of both) measuring 20cm each side
    • A list of the names of anyone who helped to create it
    • Your official group name and where you meet (city or town)
    • A little bit about your group if you have time

    Instructions for the squares:
    1. You don’t have to do two squares. If you don’t have time one is fine.
    2. Squares must be 20cm by 20cm (though a couple of mm either side is ok)
    3. Go wild with your design! There are no rules here.

    But here are some ideas to help. You could:

    • Put on your group name
    • Intarsia or embroider something to represent your area
    • Put on your group logo (if you have one)
    • Knit items to stick on
    • Knit words of group wisdom onto it

    All squares need to be returned by the 8th of November 2007 at the very latest.

    Send them to:

    Stitch and Bitch London
    105B Tranmere Road
    Earlsfield
    London
    SW18 3QP

    Please feel free to contact us at stitchandb.london@googlemail.com if you have even the tiniest question, or to let us know you want to take part. We are here to help. :)

    Good luck and happy knitting!

      Have you thought about extending the deadline even further? It would be great for groups like ours – The Oxford Bluestockings – to be able to contribute? We didn’t hear about the blanket until it was very close to the deadline and I’m sure other groups in the country are in the same position. It’s such a lovely idea and the blanket so far is SO GREAT that maybe it could become a more ongoing project?
      I love the way groups have documented themselves on your great blanket…
      …no worries if it doesn’t work for you to extend the deadline. I just wanted to suggest that, especially after seeing it at the S’n’B event, loads more groups might want to join in with this really great thing you started.
      Great to meet you all!
