As Saturday was Worldwide Knitting in Public Day. The guys at iKnit organised a little knitting themed treasure hunt in London. Taking in some of the many venues they used in their Knitting nights.
Mel, Sally, Justine and I formed Team 4-Ply. The main part of the treasure hunt included completing several tasks. Like, buying souvenirs beginning with the letters K-N-I-T. Or taking photos of London Landmarks beginning with P-U-R-L. Of course, the obvious London Landmark beginning with the letter U is the Underground!
Another task was to try to take a photo of you knitting, next to a policeman, Pearly Knit or Queen, Street PAnother task was to take a photo of your knitting, next to a policeman, Pearly Knit or Queen, Street Performer of a Famous Person. Whilst we enjoyed a cheeky half-pint in the Royal Festival Hall. Some fellow treasure hunters stopped for a chat, and they recognised Miss Flip Knit’s voices from their podcasts. So, of course, we decided they were our stars!
Additional tasks we had to include there answering 61 knitting-related questions. And knitting a skinny scarf as we walked around the city. The whole time we also carried a yellow balloon. Unfortunately, when we returned to the iKnit store. Another team sabotaged our balloon, so we failed that task. However, our scarf was the second-longest, and overall we won!
