Stitch London: city of puddled pavements, story-soaked streets, pigeons, sharp-elbowed commuters, jam-packed double-decker buses, shouty market sellers, bustling black cabs, vinegar-smelling chip shops, pubs packed with pint sippers, herds of camera-clicking tourists and endless rivers of steaming hot tea. Also a city of stitch-savvy knitters. Want to whip up your own Queen to add a bit of majesty to your mantelpiece? Wish you could woolly up your unexciting umbrella? Need to knit some little London landmarks? Totally tired your tea getting tepid? Whether you re just visiting or striving to survive as a city knitter, Stitch London is the place for you. And if you can t knit? Fear not! We ll even show you how to get clicking with your sticks and string. We re nice like that. Cute, quirky and slightly insane, this unique knitting title will show you how to knit all the most famous London people and places. From Baby Big Ben, Tiny Tower Bridge and Pint-sized Parliament Telephone Box, to Laptop Sock, Mug Huggers, City Critters and Tubeline Scarf, each project will make you put your stitching stamp on everything in sight. Each book even comes with a FREE pigeon knitting kit. Inspired and created for city chicks who don t like rules but love knitting. Projects are simple enough for beginners, yet bonkers enough to inspire more seasoned knitters. Brilliantly written in Lauren s sassy style, with genuinely clever tips and techniques. So hop on, mind the gap and Stitch London like you mean it. Sales of this book support Leukaemeia & Lymphoma Research.

Review:

''irresistible [...] fabulously crazy'' --Jan Moir, The Daily Mail

''These are just divine! The queen and the corgis!'' --Alan Titchmarsh, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, October 5th 2011

''... provides a quirky selection of knitting patterns with which not even the most hardened of Londoners could be uncheered. [...] The book also holds true to the spirit of Stitch London, the woolly monster of a knitting group that has grown under O'Farrell's guidance over the past five years: a guide to the basics of knitting is included, and the book even comes with the yarn, needles and other gubbins needed to make your very own pigeon called Cooey.'' --Londonist.com
