The IAs have it!
1. Bosnia & Herzegovina - maybe it was the knitting backing singers, but B&H got top marks from our selective panel on the night!

The latest to come our way is this brilliant poster from a French newspaper showing Jack Bauer knitting a gun - it's an ad for Tv on demand so the idea is that he won't have to wait any longer for 24...and for those who care, no, I don't think he is actually knitting, he's holding those needles all wrong!
The Shreddies ad, featuring the 'knitting nanas' caused a bit of a storm - we think it's sweet and funny, but aren't too keen on advertising Nestlé in the first place! You can watch the TV advert here.

knitting party at KOKO
The Bestival Team are putting on a party at KOKO in Camden tomorrow night - 24 May - and they would love to see some knitters there.
They have a tipi at the venue in the garden, I think, and they have invited us to be there for free a the, undoubtably, celeb packed party.
Is anyone interested in going?
We have a Eurovision party in the shop so will not be able to be there until about midnight but the are keen to welcome anyone who wants to get there earlier.
The party is to launch the festival season so I reckon there will be lots of lovely indie boys and every band you can name.
post here or send me a message and I will arrange the guest list. Gxx

La La La indeed.
Cliff deserves to be declared our 2nd winner - how's about a performance of Congratulations on 24th May?

Banksy in Leake Street
What's very funny to me, and just a little ironic, is that I remember coming upon an original Banksy in the very same street a couple of years ago (a monkey with a detonator preparing to blow up a bunch of bananas)...it was unceremoniously painted over by Network Rail who said, "We don't want graffiti on our property and we will remove it," he said. "It's ugly, illegal and the public don't like it." Now, it would seem they've changed their minds!
Go see it, it's only there in full for three days (until 5th May), and best of all the tunnel comes out on Lower Marsh, and only a few yards from I Knit London!
