All American Lion Patches from the Sweet Land of Liberty – continued
Posted by Stitch and Bitch London on March 10, 2007
Several of our Lion Ladies have fallen in love with this kooky and colourful scarf patch from Linda in beautiful Erie, Pennsylvania. Linda sadly lost her mother from lung cancer many years ago and says:“I’m proud to be part of this effort. I’m hoping my swatch gets nominated for the ‘ugliest section of scarf’. I’m capable of much prettier knitting, but I thought there will be lots of ‘pretty’, and this might be my moment to stand out”
My auntie Gilo sent these two ultra-soft scarf patches from sunny Boca Raton in Florida. It made me laugh as I don’t think the Trafalgar Square Lions have ever had a memo addressed to them before.🙂
Back in November last year the lovely Nancy and her Mum came all the way from New Hampshire on holiday. And what better way to spend your time off than by knitting with a load of strangers in a London pub.🙂
Nancy and her mum sat down and got stuck in right away. Nancy told us that she knitted her parts in the colours of the US flag, but with a peace symbol to go with the idea of uniting knitters across the world.
It was so great of them both to join us for the evening. They even gave me a little present (for all the London tour guide emails I bombarded them with) which was a handmade pewter bell from their home town.
Knitting holidays could be a thing of the future… Any other travelling knitters are very welcome to join us if they are ever in town.
