Yarn Corps Uncovered: The Magknitficent Seven – The Fastener

Posted by on Oct 30, 2009 in The Fastener, Yarn Corps | 4 comments

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into London something unexpected happens in the world of Knit the City. Like the writhing many-headed mass of a handmade hydra that we are, we have grown another yarnstorming limb. The sneaky stitching six become a magknitficent seven.

Ladies and gents we are proud to introduce Knit the City’s newest recruit, The Fastener.

Found wandering the streets of London as a lone ‘yarnbomber’ Knit the City tempted her to the wool-lined bunker with promises of shiny buttons and cake. She was then dragged through rigourous ‘yarnbomb’ detox and came, at last, to know the gentler ways of the Yarnstorm.

To see The Fastener’s story wander over to our Who? page.

For now, before the imminent yarnstorm, hits let’s find out a bit about The Fastener.

All buttons and bows and misbehaviour

Which superhero’s powers would you most like and why?

Your three stranded on a desert island yarnstorming essentials?
Other than yarn (obviously!) Sunglasses (to disguise me – I know it’s deserted but you never know?!), music to knit by, lemon meringue pie – there’re no ovens on a deserted island, people!

If you died during a yarnstorm what epitaph would you have on your gravestone?
She finally zipped it.

Now we can get on with the real reason we’re all here.
There’s a yarnstorm coming in just over 24 hours and there is absolutely nothing in the whole of London that can stop it…
