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

  • Stitched Sealife: Legend of the Tiny Stitched Squid

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 24, 2010

    Stitch London are teaming up with London’s Natural History Museum on August 27 to bring you the Stitch a Squid event.

    Six stitched specimens from the Deep Sea have escaped in the Museum. Walk softly and cast your gaze at the last escapee. Stitched Sealife Specimen number six…

    The infamous Stitched Squid has yet to be explained by oceanographic scientists, as to this date not one specimen has been caught alive. This ten-legged tearaway was knit into life by your trusty Stitched Sealife correspondent, Deadly Knitshade.

    You'll never catch me alive, see?

    Impressing his deep sea companions with his ability to survive at any depth (including above sea level) the Stitched Squid is a little bit of a legend. In the underwater hierarchy they’ve been known to rub shoulders with some of the sea’s godfather figures and hang out at only the chicest sea parties.

    Though some doubters have said that Stitched Squid don’t exist at all.

    Dippy, tell the chick with the camera to make nice and leave.

    Here at the Museum we caught this Stitched Squid at a sit down with Dippy the Dinosaur in the main hall but once he spied the cameras he gave us the slip.

    We were forced to keep a wary distance as rumours of the arm-wrestling skills of ‘Squidius Knittius’ are often to be heard told by melancholy one-armed sailors drowning their sorrows in dockside drinking establishments.

    This here is my baleen bodyguard. Say hello, Bluey.

    One look into the glassy peepers of this miniscule marine cephalopod confirmed one thing. Stitched Squid do exist somewhere out there in the briny blue.

    We just need to find them.

    Come any closer and you'll sleep with the fishes. Capiche?

    Tomorrow an anonymous tip off tells us where we’re likely to find the whole gang. Come back and check out if we manage to snap the Stitched Sealife Six together.

    You can also come along to the Natural History Museum August 27 to Stitch a Squid and join in the hunt for them.
