This year they are doing a knitted poem inspired by this huge project by The Poetry Society in London 2009... It measure 13 x 9 metres!
|a LARGE knitted poem|
Anne-Marijke from The Woolly Brew knitting group is co-ordinating the knitters and has also written a haiku to celebrate the craft.
Colours, yarn and strands
Unified in a texture -
Pins in busy hands
I have been assigned the letters A and N.
I've never done any colour work, other than stripes so this is nice challenge for me. The squares are to measure approximately 15cm x 15cm and given my loose tension and the need to keep the stitches firm to get good letter definition I may have to practice a bit!
