We’d like to say a huge thank you to everybody who got involved for making The Great Sandwich Pic-Knit such a fun and successful project! If you left your sandwich with us and are wondering what will become of it then watch this space! The plan is to tour our humble exhibition of sandwiches around other museums nationally and perhaps further afield. If you know a museum in your area which might be interested then please let us know. Just call 01947 601900 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and speak to Holly or Pete.
In the meantime, this blog is likely to go a bit quiet for now, but we’re not saying goodbye, just hasta manana! If any knitters would like to get in touch at any time then use the contacts above – we look forward to hearing from you!

Back in April, the Great Sandwich PicKnit ran a jolly workshop called ‘How to Knit an Octopus’ with Janina Emery. Many wonderful sea-creatures were created, not least this fantastic giant green character with stripey tentacles knitted by Frances aged 12. Frances finished her octopus just in time for the judging tomorrow – well done Frances, fingers-crossed for you!
As the finale approaches, the entries have been pouring in! Marvel at this beautifully crafted piece of crochet by Delphine Jasmin-Belisle entitled ‘An Octopus’ Picnic’! One hungry little octopus with curling tentacles devours a leafy-green sandwich astride a piece of fishing-net! We love the combined sea-creature and sandwich theme. Well done Delphine – what a beauty!
Just in time for the competition finale on Saturday, we have received this adorable Pink Salmon Oven Bottom hand-crocheted by ‘That Roger’ (Roger K Newton). Well done and thank you Roger, we will add your crochet creation to the display and look forward to meeting you on Saturday – don’t forget, the display will be unveiled at 1pm!
Mrs Julia Penniston of bakersfield in Nottingham has got these two little beauties (egg & tomato and cheese & lettuce) just in time! We’ll add these to the display ready for Dr Annie Shaw, chief sandwich judge, to inspect all next Saturday! Not got yours to us yet? There’s just one week to go, and some great prizes to be won! Many thanks Julia!
