Knit for Britain!

Posted on

Have you heard about knitting Britain from above? It is a fantastic venture by Sandra Brauer to do with Britain from Above, which presents the unique Aerofilms collection of aerial photographs from 1919-1953. You can register to zoom into these amazing pictures, identify unlocated images, and share memories.

As part of World Wide Knit in Public Week from 8th to 16th June 2013, we have invited people with a love of knitting help us form a woolly squadron to invade Britain’s public spaces. Here they all are! Are there any near you?

This project will be going again this year over Knit in Public day on June 14th. I cannot wait to get involved with my own bi-plane knits 🙂 There is a pattern that you can work from here: KnitforBritainfromAbove2 or alternatively you can do your own thing?

There are loads more wonderful pictures at http://www.britainfromabove.org.uk/groups/knit-britain-above (where you can upload your own images) as well as information. Have fun taking to the sky’s and getting involved!
