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

  • Join our 2010 Race for Life. Go on.

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on January 28, 2010

    Last summer a small team of S&B Londoner’s, inspired by the lovely Tina Bragaglia, knit and raced in the 2009 Race for Life. We loved it so much we’re doing it allllll again.

    This year you can join us on an inspiring London race around the City of London on the 13th of June. Peer in at St Paul’s, go woooooo at the London Wall and wave your wool at any City types who might be hanging around. See full details of the City of London Race here to help make your decision.

    We’ll be knitting as we go to (though this is optional if you fear jamming a DPN in your pancreas in a knit/race related injury) and the mystery pattern (an easy one we promise) will be announced nearer the time.

    Fancy joining us for the big Race? Go on. Last year there was cake. FREE CAKE!

    Please note: The earlier you sign up the better. It’s a popular event and there are limited places. Quick! Quick!

    Here’s what you need to do:

    1. Go to the City of London Race for Life page
    2. Click enter now
    3. Sign up for the race
    4. Put in a minimum amount for money you will raise. You’ll still be raising from the team page as it’s a team effort.

    6. Pay the fee (£12.99 per racer)
    7. Shout “Woo hoo! I’m in!”
    8. Have a cup of tea

    See last year’s tale of cake stops (within the first 200 metres), knitting and proudly marching in last place on our blog. Be inspired by Tina’s story too.

    It’s an easy race. It’s involves much giggling and many dropped stitches. It’s all rather fabulous. Join us.
