As part of The Poetry Society's centenary celebration a knitted poem is being made with knitters from all over the world contributing squares. My friend fingersandtoes is co-ordinating the sewing up, which is a mammoth task so I went along to the Poetry Society Studio and Cafe in Covent Garden to help out with the seaming.
If you're visiting Covent Garden it's worth popping in to the society's convivial cafe on Betterton Street as the food is excellent. I enjoyed a delicious bean burger wrap with teriyaki sauce.
I'd seen part of the poem at the IKnit Weekender however seeing the almost finished lines of the poem was exciting. Even more lovely was reading the names and comments from the global knitting community on the back of the squares, especially when they had mentioned their favourite poems.
The identity of the chosen poem is a secret so watch out for news on it's unveiling as it will look impressive.
