Stitch London Knit Crawl 2010: in pictures
Posted by Deadly Knitshade on June 18, 2010
Worldwide Knit in Public Day is a bigun for the Stitch London woolly Godzilla. It wants to get out there and stomp its yarny footprint all over London and this year we let it lose in London’s lovely museum district.
Nearly 100 of you knit your handmade socks off amongst the bones, birds and beasts at the Natural History Museum, in the cool poolside peace of the V&A, to the sundrenched symphony of the Albert Memorial and in the Neverneverland Neighbourhood of Kensington Garden’s Peter Pan statue.
We met with naked cyclists (MY EYES!), knitted dinosaurs, a chunky crochet frog who found a good home, a fibre-finding hound who was exhausted by all the adoration, far too much cake (no shock there) and all manner of gawping passers by.
The Knit Crawl raised a whopping £300 for the Brains Trust and left a huge woolly footprint on London for 2010. Thanks to all of those who donated prizes and everyone who took part in the public purling.
Same time next year. Who knows where we’ll be…
