  27. well done for making us knitters proud…. so much hard work, you deserve every congrats you get and congrats to purple purler for the new stitchette status x

  28. Love this one! :) Beautiful

  29. June’s my Mum. (the one credited at the beginning) Thanks for the credit. You’re completely right – she would have loved something like this and certainly would have taken part if she could. I think the project’s brilliant. Could you do a scaled down version for my moby, please?

  30. Hi, I’m June’s daughter and am so chuffed with the dedication to her. The phone box cosie is a tour de force, what a great bunch you are. She would have loved it, she was a special lady and full of fun. I live in Bristol and feel this City needs a knitting grafitti person a la Banksy to cheer it up. My knitting skills leave a lot to be desired but maybe I should take on the challenge.

    • We’re so pleased to have been able to use her yarn as a fitting tribute. Thanks so much for the kind words.

      We think you should totally yarnstorm Bristol! A yarnstorm starts with one stitch you know. :)

  31. i play golf with my great friend lyn who is june’s daughter i met her mum and she was a very funny and lovely ladies, i think she would think the knitting is great love sheree x

  32. I have just been to a History of Knitting exhibition in Central Library, Bristol and was delighted to see a photo of the Phone Box cosie as a great example of knitting graffiti. My Mum would have loved this story. Kate (June’s daughter).

    • Yay! Glad they used the pic in the end. They got in contact with us a while back to ask. How could we say no? :)

  33. Hi I am another of June’s daughters, what a brilliant dedication to our great Mum. I am sure she will be looking at the PURLY Gates wandering how she can yarnstorm them

    Best Wishes for your next ventures

    • Hee hee. Purly gates. Love that. :)

      We promise to carry on using the yarn for stuff to make you all proud.

  34. Hello From New Brunswick, Canada
    What a lovely tribute.
    You’ve inspired me to Knit my City.
    Happy Knitting!

  35. ooh this is brilliant.
    I think we should simultaneously do some pillar boxes next? What does anyone think?
    And just leave them on.. :) If we could do enough… then tip off the newspapers :)

    • You’re very welcome to go ahead and rustle up some pillar box knitters.

      Let us know how it goes. :)

  36. So fantastic! Keep knitting the city. xx

  37. Hopefully I will see someone knitting like that for Big Ben, lol
