Achtung! Yarnstorming Berlin for our brand new book!

Want to wander through Knit the City’s woolly world while you’re still in your PJs, on the commute to the office, under zombie attack, or when you’re meant to be working, but can’t get online? Fear not! Knit the City has been squashed into a handy thing they call a book just for you. SQUEEEEEEEEE! A book! The sneaky stitching story of Knit the City, Knit the City –Maschenhaft Seltsames, has been lovingly poured onto 128 pages, through the weaving of words and snapping of pictures of Deadly Knitshade. The book also features Ms Knitshade’s solo Whodunnknit knitblasts, and a knitting pattern for the infamous Finger-fighting Stitched Squid (squidius knittius) captured in London’s Natural History Museum. Showcasing the woolly work of Deadly Knitshade, Knitting Ninja, Lady Loop, Shorn-a the Dead, The Fastener, and other past Yarn Corps sneaky stitchers who have since been eaten by yarn monsters, it’s a hoard of handmade happiness with a filthy underbelly and several ticklish bits. Hang on! It’s all in German!??! The book is currently only available in German (click here for book information in German) by publishing lovelies Hoffmann und Campe. There’ll be a UK version along very very soon, so watch this space… To celebrate sneaky stitching in print the Yarn Corps are flying to Berlin this very weekend for some yarnstorming goodness. Anyone in Berlin can join Deadly, Shorn-a, Lady Loop and a small crocheted version of The Fastener (who will remain in the UK working on her most fabulous creation) for our first ever yarnstorm on foreign shores and a yarn-flavoured signing of our new book.
