Wheeee! I took part in the BT Artbox Project by making the world’s only knitted Phone Box Beast.
My BT ArtBox was on show on the Trafalgar Square roundabout from June 16th to July 16th where he wooed women, was hugged by children and charmed the pants off the city. He was created to celebrate 25 years of the NSPCC’s Childline Charity.
Read all about it here in my Dial M for Monster blog post.
Woolly thanks: Huge woolly thanks to the brilliant Sirdar who donated yarn to make Muncher. Such fab colours.
