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

  • Stitch and Swastika anyone?

    Stitch and swastika anyone?

    Knitting gets controversial again this week as The Sun puts stitching on page 6 (21st June 2008).

    The Sun tell us that Rachael Matthews, of Bethnal Green’s fabulous Prick Your Finger has created a book of patterns for knitted dictators.

    Well you can’t believe everything you read, as you know, and Rachael tells us that:

    “I haven’t written a book on knitted dictators….I just got stitched up by the SUN. If I had written it, I could have sold it a million times over this week, but unfortunatley I was on holiday in the Orkney’s, sitting on a beach knitting an hour glass when the story broke!”

    S&B are big fans of PYF’s delightfully in your face with pointy sticks knitting, after the SnB UK Blanket Square they made us last year.

    You can gaze in wonder at the ‘heated debate’ that the Knitler article started on the Sun’s lovely (cough) website here (if you have nothing better to do with your day).

      I’m surprised at Rachael’s reply there… How come the Sun’s comment is so detailed? They must have seen something with that in there – I heard there was something at London Book Fair once.
