You may have heard of guerrilla gardeners... Now prepare to meet your friendly neighbourhood guerrilla knitters, whose prime objective is to enliven dull city streets with a riot of colour - one stitch at a time. These creative knitting ninjas transformed a ballerina outside the Royal Opera House with their woolly works of art and installed a 13 ft spider's web, replete with trapped insects and fairies, in a tunnel beneath Waterloo station. The stunning photographs of their exquisite feats in Knit the City will ensure that you never see knitting - or London - in the same way again.
* Inspirational, colourful and cool, this book will appeal to the art humour market as well as hard-core crafters. * Knitting, along with all handicrafts, is cool again! * Includes easy patterns for those inspired to do a bit of yarnstorming themselves.
