The Stitch and Bitch London Tashtastic Knit Crawl 2009
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on May 31, 2009
In 2007 we Knit Crawled for Cancer Research, in 2008 we Knit Crawled for Breast Cancer Care, this year Worldwide Knit in Public Day looms once more. The Stitch and Bitch London Knit Crawl 2009 has a far manlier theme…
The Stitch and Bitch London Tashtastic Knit Crawl 2009 will take to the streets of lovely London Town on Saturday the 13th of June.
We’ll stomp our way across four iconic London sights:
Tower Bridge: get down with the ravens and explain to tourists they’re not at London Bridge
Tate Modern: knit it up all arty-like in the gargantuan turbine hall where passers-by will assume you are an art installation
London Eye: get your stitch on in Jubilee Gardens under the gaze of the all-seeing London Eye
Trafalgar Square: a Knit Crawl traditional. Say hi to the Lions and furiously blend in with whatever festival happens to be taking place there, while knitting like you mean it
This year we’re doing it bloke-flavoured, raising money for the Prostate UK Charity in a tashtastic manner. We’ll be knitting (and possibly wearing, for those with no shame) moustaches for that manly feel.
We’ll also be offering some knit-flavoured raffle prizes, free gifts, and the chance to wear a knitted moustache in public (optional).
And you may be able to buy this fine face fur for the price of a donation on the day.
