'It is a book led by photos and would make a great talking point for a coffee table book. I read it all in one sitting but I'm not putting it on the shelf yet as I want others to enjoy it too.'(About.com)

From there, the projects got more complicated and involved more naughty needles as the group expanded. A woolly web in the tunnels near Waterloo Station. A complete set of knitted, er, bits to match the old "Shillings and Farthings" rhyme... (the Vicar of St. Clements must have been charmed to find a stack of furry oranges on the door that morning). Twenty miles of tiny sheep. A pirate invasion (including Captain Cheesebeard, the best pirate ever). A suitably sweet Valentine's Day celebration that involved decking out Piccadilly Circus in happy hearts.
The piece de fuzzy resistance is, of course, Plarchie. Plarchie is an enormous (10 meter, I believe) knitted squid, composed of shredded orange Sainsbury's bags. He's made numerous public appearances, but his debut was at the Natural History Museum, when the huggable tentacled horror draped himself across Charles Darwin and menaced visitors for days.
All these escapades are captured in Knit the City and retold in Ms. Knitshade's delightfully whimsical tone of voice. There's no moaning or self-aggrandizing about the days of effort that must have gone into each stunt, just a cheerful recap of the whatknitted and a bevy of photos illustrating the work and the delighted faces of passersby. This book is adorable and should be in everyone's (striped/squid-patterned/pirate) stocking for the holidays.Read more ›
