Moustache-arama: S&B London Knit Crawl 2009
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on June 19, 2009
London in the sunshine. What better way to see the city and celebrate Worldwide Knit in Public Day than winding your way down the South Bank wearing a knitted moustache, and dropping stitches as you go?
We took a whole herd of lovely S&B Londoners from the scorching Scoop at Tower Bridge, to the cool shadows of the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall, to sun-drenched Jubilee Gardens under the gaze of the London Eye, to the Lion-guarded environs of Trafalgar Square.
And the moustaches, in aid of the Prostate UK Charity, were everywhere.
Knit Crawl Stop One: Tashes at Tower Bridge
Knit Crawl Stop Two: Tate Modern tasharama
Knit Crawling: from place to place
Knit Crawl Stop Three: London Eye Mustaschios
Knit Crawl Stop Four: Face Fur in Trafalgar Square
An utterly tashtastic day was had by everyone and we raised an astounding £500 for Prostate Cancer UK.
The hardcore Knit Crawlers ended up in the pub where we raised our glass to the bizarre combination of knitting and men’s undercarriages.
The Stitchettes would like to thank every Knit Crawler for their dedication to the manly cause, for proudly wearing their tashes while knitting in some of London’s most public spaces, and for being an essential part of the best S&B London Knit Crawl to date. You guys rock.
