Yarn Corps Uncovered Part Two: Deadly Knitshade and The Purple Purler

There’s a definite yarnstorm electricity in the air. Where in this tangled ball of yarn of a city is it coming from? Londom’s street smog is thick with it. It can only be a matter of time before it hits. In the meantime we drag two more unsuspecting sneaky stitchers from the secret wool-lined bunker to confess. Stepping out of the shadows are the knitblast-cursed rodent-wrangling Deadly Knitshade and the fang-fixated Purple Purler.   Deadly Knitshade What is your theme tune? A Four-Legged Friend by Roy Rogers Which superhero’s powers would you most like and why?...

First out of the secret wool-lined bunker are the sweary butterfly-surrounded Bluestocking Stitcher and the sheepdip-sniffing Shorn-a the Dead. The Bluestocking Stitcher What is your theme tune?...

There are much less smelly festivals too. And Knit the City were invited to take part in one.

Yarnstorm the Fifth: Memorial of Melancholy

In the dark and dingy depths of the Leake Street tunnel we, the Knit the City Yarn Corps, lost our Web of Woe not 24 hours after it was so carefully installed.

When the wounds were less fresh and the scars were beginning to heal four brave members of the Yarn Corps returned to the site to remember. For the remaining two it was still too painful.
