Wet weather contingency. We will be in Cartlands Tea Rooms if the weather is wet.
On Friday night our knit graffiti faction struck at the heart of a Birmingham suburb. We met after night fall and covered 48 safety bollards surrounding a roundabout in a rainbow of knitting.
I’m sad to say that at the time of writing (Monday 8 August) most of the pieces from the roundabout had been taken. I’m always perplexed why anyone would take a piece of knit graffiti. What are they going to do with it when they get home?
I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who helped make pieces for the rounabout. Tsz, Christian, Sara, Catherine, Emily, Vickie, Rhiannon and Teresa.
Mark Wilson has also taken some great shots of the knitting and put them up on Flickr here
Once again a small group of S&H stitchers are preparing for our next knit graffiti project. There’s not long to go now until our install day. As always I can’t tell you where we will be, but here are a few pictures of our work in progress
