A new kind of knitting

Last night I cycled along the seafront to the Art Stop Cafe in Bransbury Park where the knitting machine was out and in full swing, creating some Grease inspired yarn bombing! The lovely ladies of Knit Pompey are making these pieces to coincide with the show at the Kings Theatre and they will be fixed to lamp posts along Albert Road in October. I had never seen a knitting machine in action before so I was really curious. I even did 200 rows – which on this marvel took a matter of minutes!

Keep your eyes peeled for the yarn bombing!


    • No, there are loads of little hooks and you have to cast on, then the carriage that you zoom over the top somehow does the knitting for you! Its magical.
