Four chances to knitblast four iconic London sights.

The London Eye will look out for you...

The London Eye will look out for you...

Stop Three. The London Eye and the Millenium Bridge.

Pink Furry Knitting: So we’re going sightseeing, eh? Yay! How exciting! In Central London, you say?

Deadly Knitshade: Yup. Central London. I’ll take you to see the London Eye if you like.

Pink Furry Knitting: Really? The London Eye? Wow!

Deadly Knitshade: And Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. The government lives there, you know.

Pink Furry Knitting: The government! Big Ben! Woo hoo! Maybe I’ll get to hear him chime! Like on the news at New Year.

Deadly Knitshade: You might. And if you’re really good I’ll take you to the Millenium Bridge to look at the River Thames too.

Pink Furry Knitting: Gosh! That’s ever so nice of you.

Deadly Knitshade: Ah, don’t mention it.

Pink Furry Knitting: And…you won’t leave me there will you?

Deadly Knitshade: What do you mean?

Pink Furry Knitting: Well, I sort of noticed that when you’ve taken some of my woolly siblings out. Well…

Deadly Knitshade: Go on…

Pink Furry Knitting: Well, they… *lowers voice* …haven’t come home.

Deadly Knitshade: I told you where they were. Didn’t I?

Pink Furry Knitting: *mumbling* You said they got stolen by pigeons.

Deadly Knitshade: What was that? Speak up. What did I tell you?

Pink Furry Knitting: They got stolen by pigeons.

Deadly Knitshade: Exactly. But you don’t have to worry. I spent hours making you. I wouldn’t just abandon you and let a pigeon steal you. Now would I? Hmm? *tickles knitting under chin* Hmm?

Pink Furry Knitting: *giggling* Hee hee. No. Of course not. Silly, silly me…

Hello? Hello...?

Hello? Hello...?

*sound of pigeon wings flapping and clawed feet landing on the railing of Millenium Bridge*
