Things which have caught my eye this week…
- This article by Fabrizio de’ Marinis on ‘Empire of Tartan‘
- British Airways is apparently joining the ‘slow TV’ phenomenon – bringing selected programmes into their in-flight entertainment, with knitting being one of the proposed topics.
- Knitted bunting in Masham for the starting stage of this year’s Tour de France had to be removed due to safety fears… apparently the concern was down to the fact that officials worried that the yarn may cause the lamp-posts to fall over. No I don’t get this either… if the lamp-posts are incapable of supporting knitting what on earth are they made out of? However, you will be delighted to know that Cambridge lamp-posts are capable of supporting knitted bunting, even if they do get wet.
