You have heard of pub crawling, once the staple of freshers weeks (perhaps it still is) and stag nights, before they became stag weekends and chaps had to jet off to places like Amsterdam or even Riga.
Well this Saturday if you are in London look out for yarn crawlers (you can even join them if you are quick).
It's the day of The Great London Yarn Crawl
Nine groups of knitters (Romney, BFL, Swaledale, Cheviot, Jacob, Wensleydale, Shetland, Suffolk and Teesdale) will be knitting their way around yarn shops by train, tube and bus. A little footwork will also be involved, I for one would like to see if I can knit walking! Maybe not! But one thing's for sure I am taking this project as there is nothing like plain rounds of knit stitch when you want to chat and int at the same time. It's the Waterlilly sweater from the spring edition of Pom-Pom Mag knitted in Kettle Yarn Co's beautiful Islington in Old Smoke colourway
Each group will be properly looked after by two well briefed guides. This is us at Sunday's briefing meeting.
There will be goodie bags
And an after party, sponsored by the awesome Pom-Pom Mag
The whole thing is the brain child of Alli and Rachel of Yarn In The City and all net proceeds are donated to Refuge a charity that provides a safe place for women and children escaping domestic violence
Hope to see some of you are going to be there (do please let me know in the comments if you are)
