  • Stitch a Squid at the Natural History Museum: in pictures

    Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 23, 2010

    Stitch London hit the main hall of London’s Natural History Museum on 27 August in an attempt to bring a shoal of stitched squid to life.

    Amongst the dinosaur bones, stuffed beasts and birds, and fine fossils the stitched squid storm raged.

    We witnessed the safe capture of the Stitched Sealife Six.

    The very shamefaced Viper Fish

    The attritional Oarfish

    We were awed by the presence of the Godfather of Stitched Sealife: the Giant Stitched Squid (squidius knittius giganticus plasticus) who was brought to life by Deadly Knitshade from 160 knitted plastic carrier bags.

    There were a whole lot of you squid stitchers too. Squid wrestling was rife but fortunately no serious injuries were had.

    Huge tentacled hugs to all 23 of our Stitch Sages who helped pass on the stitched squid skills, Laura Babb who took some some cracking photos you can see here, and the Natural History Museum for allowing us to wreck stitched sealife chaos in their lovely museum.

    If you want to knit a tiny Finger-fighting Stitched Squid of your own you can buy the pattern here. Be warned. If you challenge one to a wrestle broken fingers have been known to happen.
