stitches and hos knit graffiti

It has been an ambition of mine to pay homage to one of Stitches and Hos’ inspirations Knitta. So when we were invited to host a day at The Knitting Salon I knew it was the perfect opportunity to do some knit graffiti.

So, on Saturday myself and some of my knitting chums went over to West Bromwich to take over The Knitting Salon at The Public.

We spent the day attaching our pieces of preprepared knitting to the building, trees and outdoor seats.

Here are some pictures of what we got up to

If you’re over at The Public before 30 October why don’t you see if you can spot all of the pieces of knit graffiti.

Hopefully we’ll get the opportunity to do some more knit graffiti.  It was loads of fun – especially the great reaction we got from the people of West Bromwich.

I would like to say a big thank you to the team – Emily, Hamble, Nicola, Amanda, Catherine and Tia who all made such wonderful pieces of knitting to tag The Public.  I would also like to say a big thank you to all of the staff at The Public who were really helpful.

Stitches and Hos needs you!

I’m looking for a small group of knitters to take part in an event I’m planning at The Public in West Bromwich.

S&H have been asked by Trevor Pitt to take over the gallery for a day.  I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for some yarn bombing a la S&H hero Knitta .

To take part you need to be free on Saturday 16 October (times TBA) and be able to get to West Bromwich under your own steam. S&H may be able to cover the cost of travel (train or meto tickets).

If you are interested in getting involved please email me info[at]stitchesandhos.co.uk no later than 3 September 2010 for more information.
