K: Knit a Poem

The Poetry Society " wanted to celebrate the society’s centenary with a fun, grand-scale project in which many people could participate, that was about ‘poetry’ but also summoned up the idea of ‘society’, to reflect all the thousands of people who’ve kept the Society going since 1909. The time, commitment and creative skills that people have given to this enterprise has been overwhelming."

Here I am with 2 ladies from my knitting group, Sally and Penny.
I'm knitting the letter T.

I have yet to see the finished knitted poem.

Left to right measurement of finished poem: 13 metres (43 ft) at its widest point Top to bottom measurement: 8.7 metres (28 ft) at its widest point Number of squares: 1200+ 

The squares were made up as the poem In My Craft or Sullen Art  by Dylan Thomas

Pam Ayres wrote an amsuing poem which involved knitting.

'Thoughts of a Late-Night Knitter.Had I felt inspired I would have attempted one myself too.

Do you knit? Have you seen the knitted poem?
