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

  • Stitch and Blimey! That is one BIG BUNNY!

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on March 29, 2009

    So picture this: you are sitting on an aeroplane sipping your glass of in-flight vino, you managed to sneak your Denise knitting needles through airport security (yay!) so you’re purling away, you nabbed a window seat to inspire you with planeside views, you peer down on the world, you see tiny houses, you see teeny trees, you see a giant pink knitted rabbit, you see…hang on! What?!

    Near the town of Artesina, in the Italian Alps, lies a GIANT KNITTED PINK RABBIT! A group of four Austrian artists called Gelitin have spent five years, and possibly a lot of pairs of needles, knitting a beast so big you can see it on satellite cameras.

    Don’t believe us? You can see it on Google Maps in all its finery.

    The giant bunny will be lounging on the hillside for the next 20 years (or until a giant knitted fox comes to eat him), so if you’re in the area you are invited by the artists to “climb up along its ears, almost fall into its cavernous mouth, to the belly-summit and look out over the pink woollen landscape of the rabbit’s body, a country dropped from the sky”. Field trip, anyone?
