Knit the City
What on earth do you think you’re doing with that wool?
Knit the City were a crack collective of four woolly warriors who turned the city knitwise from February 2009, when we were gathered by the mysterious Deadly Knitshade. We continued sneaky stitching until 2013 when we snuck away while you were looking at our art, leaving Deadly to art solo style.
Made up of Deadly Knitshade, The Fastener, Shorn-a the Dead and Lady Loop, we had an ongoing mission to guerilla knit the city of London, and beyond that the world, and bring the art of the sneaky stitch to a world without wool.
No part of the city was safe from Knit the City’s woolly war on the mundane, humdrum and expected.
Each of the Yarn Corps‘ individuals had our own reasons for our knitty crimes but our mission remained the same: to yarnstorm until we could yarnstorm no more or until the needles and hooks were pried from our cold dead hands. Or until it was time for a tea break.
