EXCLUSIVE SNEAK PEEK: Stitch London – the book!

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on September 27, 2011

STOMP! RUSTLE! STOMP! RUSTLE! What on earth is that noise? AAAIIIIIIIEEEEEE!!! The woolly Godzilla that is Stitch London has been transformed… into a book! And best of all each book contains a kit to knit the world’s most beautiful ladylike pigeon inside. Woo hoo!

Finally London has its very own knitting book! Stitch London, written by Chief Woolly Godzilla Wranger Lauren O’Farrell and published by the good folks at David & Charles, is a collection of 20+ of Lauren’s kookiest London-themed patterns in one shiny book. It’s her first ever pattern book and it tangles together her two great loves kooky knitting and the lovely pigeon-filled city of London.

Stitch London? Why would I want to knit London?

You can whip up your own HRH to add a bit of majesty to your mantelpiece. You could woolly up your unexciting umbrella with handful of Umbrella Fellas. You can build a knitty city with some little London landmarks, and stop your tea getting tepid with a cockney-rhyming slang Mug Hugger. Whether you’re just visiting or striving to survive as a city knitter, Stitch London is the place for you.

Not a knitter or a bit scared of new knitting challenges?

Fear not! We’ll even show you how to get clicking with your sticks and string. We’re nice like that.

Instant Pigeon Stitching

“Cooo coooo…” Oh yes, and it’s not just full of little knits. The book also contains everything you need to knit the pattern for the quite frankly gorgeous Cooey the Pigeon. Wheeeeeeeee!

Beating the stuffing out of cancer

And lastly a MWA HA HA HAAA in the face of Cancer. At the same time as the book is published Lauren is celebrating 5 years in remission from cancer. With this in mind all sales of this book support Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research to help other people beat the pants off cancer too.

Any more cool stuff? You get two bonus patterns if you register at You can also follow @cooeythepigeon on Twitter and like her on Facebook for updates and exclusive Stitch London book stuff. Coo-coo-cool.



For those of you who might fear that pigeon knitting is a little too challenging for their needles we’ve made a little movie to show you how easy it is. Knit the Pigeon: the Movie contains scenes of daring rooftop knitting, the innards of the Fleece Station where this little pigeon was first hatched and a rather catchy tune.You can attend the world premiere by watching it on Youtube here:

Help Us Knit Hats for St Mungos

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 30, 2011

Hobbit star Martin Freeman in his Orange Woolly Hat

Woo hoo! We’ve found enough knitters for the 30 hats we needed. But you can still help!

Check out or contact

You Stitch Londoners are amazing. 🙂


Stitch Londoners are a helpful bunch and we’re hoping you can help us help St Mungos.

The St Mungo’s homeless charity want us to knit 30 orange bobble hats to help launch their new campaign. We’re looking for knitters to help out with their needles. We’ll provide the yarn.

What we need you to do: Contact us and sort out picking up the yarn from a Stitch London meeting or from the Fleece Station

What we’re doing: We’re donating all the orange yarn for the hats and helping St Mungo’s find enough knitters to knit them

The free yarn can be picked up from The Fleece Station (address here) or from a Stitch London meeting (unfortunately Stitch London can’t afford to cover the costs of sending it out to people so it’ll have to be London knitters only). The pattern will be sent to you via email.

If you fancy helping out please contact us at with the subject header: ‘I want to make woolly hats’ and tell us:

1. How many hats you will knit

2. Where you will pick up the yarn from

Hats left to find knitters for: 0

What happens if I missed out on knitting one of the hats?!?! Never fear. Though we only need to help make 30 hats  (as we’re busy with lots of events so can’t manage all St Mungo’s knits ourselves) there is still the chance to help!

Happily you can still knit for St Mungo’s once we’re done. You can contact them at and find out more about Woolly Hat Day at Hurrah!

Keep Calm, Carry Yarn and Help Clean Up London

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on August 9, 2011

There really is nothing anyone can say that can make the madness of the last few nights make sense. We woke up in a disillusioned and beaten-up London today.

But rather than lock our doors Londoners are grabbing their brooms, pulling on their gardening gloves and getting out there to help the Riot Wombles clean up the capital. Hooray for Londoners!

Here are a few ways you can help:

Riot Clean Up has a list of locations where clean ups are happening

@riotcleanup on Twitter is out there with the clean up teams and is tweeting away

Post riot clean-up: let’s help London are doing a bang up job of keeping helping opportunities up to date on Facebook

Over in Tottenham they’re asking for clothing, bedding, toys and other suitable items for families made homeless. Drop off at the Homes for Haringey office: Apex House, 820 Seven Sisters Road N15.

In reply to all the footage being blasted at us from the news of burning buildings and a city gone mad, there’s this:

And lastly Norwegian knitter Kaja Marie Lereng Kvernbakken, who recently made the OsLove knitted heart pattern to show love and support after the sad events in Norway, has updated the pattern with two new hearts for London, the Lovedon Hearts Knitting Pattern.

Kaja Marie says “My hope is that you will use this pattern, tweak it as you wish, and make hearts, loads of them: To remember what happened in Oslo and on Utøya or anywhere else where a little bit of love is needed. Pin it close to your heart, give to a friend or a stranger, let it out in the wild, as my graffiti knitting friend Deadly Knitshade would do, so that the heart can find whoever needs it. Knit it in any colour, with or without words, knit them and share them.”

Once the clean up is over and the knitting starts again I hope to see these little Lovedon hearts spreading the love.

If you have any tips on how to help London then please post them in the comments for others to see.

Keep calm, carry yarn and let’s get on with sorting out our city.

MSF raise the Knit Signal. To the Knit Mobile, people!

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on July 21, 2011

None of us can have failed to notice the sad happenings in Somalia (even with the distraction of evil newspaper doings). This weekend the good folks at P/Hop raised the Knit Signal in the hopes that you crafty folks will dash to the rescue. We’re pretty confident you will, as you always have before and we know you have hearts bigger than your yarn stashes (and some of you have stashes you can see from space).

MSF don’t need you to knit for the people of Somalia, they badly need funds to help people out.

There are tons of ways you can probably think of to raise funds: from giving your yarn money to the cause and destashing instead, to knitting something fabulous and raffling it off, to giving some of your Etsy/Folksy/paper round profits, to wrapping rich people you know in eyelash yarn and not letting them out until they hand over their cash. MWA HA HAAAAAAA!

Whatever you give even the tiniest amount will help MSF make things better, and you get that warm fuzzy feeling inside while you sit and stitch.

And if you have nothing to give please pass this on to those who might.

Hop over to p/hop for more info (and some lovely patterns to tempt more funds from you)

Thanks, lovely Stitch Londoners. Woolly hugs for you all.

Stitched Science: in pictures

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on June 30, 2011

The woolly eagle has landed! Stitched Science at London’s Science Museum blasted off last weekend and brought a galaxy of woolly stars with it.

There was a giant Stitched Solar System, over 250 Stitched Self handmade mini mes, over 60 Stitched Science Specimens sent in from around the globe, and eight cosmic crafty workshops areas teaching everything from Martian making to knitting planets from plastic bags.

If you missed it here’s a glimpse at some of what went on at the Star Spangled event:

The countdown begins. 5...4...3...2...1...

We have Stitched Science lift off!

When Stitched Science was dreamed up and we were shown the space there was to fill, I decided ‘space’ was certainly the word for it. The only thing to do would be to fill it with something sciencey and giant, and what’s more giant than the solar system we’re currently floating about in?

Bringing the wild idea to life took three planet wranglers (myself, Natali O’Farrell and Gary Northfield), 25 knitters (knitting long strips to make up each planet), and the kind donations of giant balloons from Signature Balloons and most of the yarn from Coats Craft. Here are our planets…

Our sun was over two metres wide and covered in over 8 metres of handsewn felt.

Here comes the sun

Tiny Mercury was wrapped in yarn to make a giant ball of wool in grey Mercury colours.

AGH! A giant ball of yarn!

Venus was rolled in handknitted strips and sprinkled with real poisonous gas (honest).

Cough! Cough! The poison gas!

Earth was fashioned from many, many plastic bags with plarn (plastic bag yarn) knitted up and shaped into the continents. The moon was handknitted too.

Plarn-knit Earth and a balloon moon

Handknit Mars began life with three Manic Mars Martians wandering about its woolly surface. More Martians would be added throughout the event. Things were going to get crowded…

Whee! The planet is ours!

Jupiter went up half-finished and it was up to our knitting jenny cord makers to complete it.

Half-naked planet *blushes*

Saturn was surrounded by a bare-naked ring ready to be filled up with pom poms to form its icy particles.

Simple Saturn awaits pom pom pals

Uranus (snicker) was conjured up on a knitting machine and then handsewn into a swirly shape.

The rudest planet there is. Poor thing.

Neptune was made up of some crazy handknitting and featured a white spot just like the real thing.

Have I got a spot coming up?

And because we didn’t want to leave him out here’s Pluto, the almost-planet. He was knit by hand in the round with a few purly rows thrown in for decoration.

I am a planet! Dammit!

Finished travelling the Solar System? We’ve got lots more to share!

Over the past couple of months people have been sending in Stitched Science Specimens from all over the UK and the globe. We wanted to make sure they were treated with the proper respect they deserved so we tucked each of them safely into official Science Museum showcases for the event. There were 64 Stitched Specimens in total and they were all absolutely astoundingly brilliant. We’ll blog them in more detail later on but here’s a view of a few.

A woolly welcome from a case of Stitched Science Specimens

Nebula, ovum, DNA to name a few...

Rockets, planes, paracetamol...

We had some science celebs in too.

The marvellous Marie Curie

A xylophone-playing Patrick Moore (and his cat)

A purly Professor Brian Cox with volcano crater in tow

And a little Galileo, telescope in hand

And there was more from the sublime to the silly…

A hand embroidered radiotherapy mask and hot-air balloon start our second wing of Stitched Specimens

Amazing embroidered and crocheted bacteria

Vacanti's Earmouse! Ewwwww and yet awwwwwwww!

A spritely Bacteriophage

A giant handknitted plug

Lego, DNA, a Space Invader...

Knitting infused with scents to tingle the senses

Artificial heart, blood cells, pencilliium...

Astronauts, experimental peas, Sputnik and telescope...

Aparatus for the lab, molecules, pills and cells...

A blue-screen computer, mathematical equations...

...lightbulbs and star-gazers...

and who could forget Plarchie, the handknitted squid?

Plarchie reclines at the plarn table

And we weren’t alone in our cosmic craft! We had crafty friends there too.

There was some Cross Stitch skill being passed on by manbroiderer Mr X Stitch and his folks:

Manly stitchin' abounds

Yay! Computery cross stitch!

There was some brainy knitting going on with the Knit a Neuron crew:

The KAN gals

Oooo. Brainy!

Woolly Thoughts were wowing the crowd with their illusion knitting:

Team Woolly Thoughts squashing maths into knits

Sneaky stitched science

Wizard! Ain't that young Harry Potter?!?!

The marvellous Materialists created a technological tapestry:

The lovely ladies of the Materialistics

Hard at work handmaking

and The Make Lounge went monster mad!

Jam-packed with monster makers

Tiny monster maker goes for the shiny things

Aaaaaaand that wasn’t all. Your 255 Stitched Self handmade mini me were there too!

Wheeeeeeee! Stitched Self par-tay!

It was fun, fun and more fun. Here are a few highlights…

A pleased pom pom maker

Putting pom poms on the planet ring

Plarn-knit Earth knitters getting to grips with their needles

Adding plarn to the planet

Martian-making stitching sisters

Releasing the Mars Martians

Plarchie meeting the plug: fried calamari for all!

And we met some of the makers too.

Knitted Nebula maker, Lisa Bentman

Lego-stitcher extraodinaire, Linda Laidlaw

Partick Moore purler, Clare Tovey

Plant Cell stitcher, Becky Button

Stitched Self makers Gary, Thomas and Susannah Northfield

Stitched Self maker, Katie 'Hoxton Handmade' of Electric Sheep podcast fame

When it was all over our Solar System was mostly stitched, the Martians had totally taken over Mars and a cosmic crafty time had been had by all. Phew!


Stitched Science. Ta dah!

If you missed out there are more pics over at Stitch London’s Stitched Science set.

Even more pics over at Stitch London’s Stitch Up.

And we’ll be blogging each of the Stitched Specimen’s close up and in detail very soon.

Plus you can purchase the Manic Mars Martian knitting pattern for a bargain price over at Whodunnknit. All profits go towards keeping Stitch London running free events like this one. Yay!

Thanks to everyone who came along and made Stitched Science so spectacular.
