We than went onto the Tate Modern via the Millennium bridge and the weather was starting to get hot.
Stop No.2 The Tate Modern 1.30pm - 2.30pm
( Sorry got arty for this pic)
We Knitted on the steps of the slope leading into the main turbine hall, which was nice and cool and break from the heat outside. Lauren from Stitch and Bitch gave us some goodies and welcomed us. It was a really nice atmosphere in the Tate, very calming perfect for knitting.
Stop No.4 Trafalgar Square 5pm - 6pm
The home of the giant stone lions. This was noisy as there was a protest meeting going on, plus not only was it World Wide Knitting in Public Day it was also World naked bike riders day :O
By this stop we also wished we had remembered to bring some cushions to sit on, the paved floor was starting to feel very hard.
We sat near one of the lions and did a spot of knitting and felt happy with ourselves. We had also heard from other knitters (they had been yarn shopping pre-starting the knit crawl) about a new shop off Carnaby street All the Fun of the Fair , so decided we needed one more knitting related stop.
All the Fun of the fair - Unit 2.8 Kingly Court off Carnaby Street, London W1B 5PW
A little shop of treasures, they specialise in hand knitted cakes and quirky hand knitted items (prefect gifts) they have a good selection of yarns and haberdashery plus crafts and even old knitting patterns.
I purchased a couple of knitting dolly's (for the collection) and yes I did buy more yarn and as it was WWKIPD the very helpful lady (friendly and knowledgeable I will be shopping there again)who owned the store gave us 10% off and even guided us to a tasty selection of bargain yarns :)
A perfect ending to a knitting day :)
