Half Sick of Stitching: Knit the City take over Tate Britain

On London’s lazy river lies an art museum known worldwide, That houses art of many kinds Including Waterhouse’s pride The Lady of Shalott.   To Tate the sneaky stitchers lope, Taking a single knitted rope, To weave it into what they hope, Shows traces of Shalott. Inside the quiet gallery, They tame the cord for all to see, And turn it into poetry, Pinched from the fair Shalott. And up and down the people go, While there a woolly lily grows, With soft blue water down below, Its roots grown from Shalott. Four fibrous woolly handmade towers, Conjured up by knitting powers, To show...

Berlin: Bobbing Bear-lin Luftballons – the Movie

Back in March we travelled all the way to Berlin to release some of our woolly mischief overseas. Pariser Platz in front of Berlin’s Brandenburg Gate saw a little bit of sneaky stitching. Well, maybe not quite so sneaky considering how many people slowed down their city shuffle to watch. Starring Knit the City, a very tall and very helpful passing giant, frogs, bears, snakes and sausages, KTC’s...

Berlin: The lonesome tale of the Woolly Currywurst

The last installment of our Berlin Book Launch: So far our book launch had included floating fairytale Brothers Grimm and ‘I heart Berlin’ bears, flying frog princes, and skybound riverside squid. All of them had enjoyed a bit of the book-launch limelight. It was almost time to pack up our yarn and go home. But someone hadn’t had their fifteen minutes of fame, and that someone was a spicy stitched sausage. Shorn-a the Dead had created a Woolly Currywurst to bring to Berlin and in all the excitement he’d been overshadowed and left all alone. For those not in the know...
