Giant Green Octopus

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!

An Octopus’ Picnic

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!

Last call for sandwiches…..

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!

Gully made by Philly

As the project finale day draws ever closer you knitters are really pulling out all the stops!  Just look at this incredible creation, fondly named Gully, knitted by Philly Collings of Leeds (with a little help from Simon Burgess and his Blue-Peter Badge worthy crafting skills). Gully looked very much at home in the museum courtyard earlier and delighted with his own juicy hamburger sandwich.  A huge thank you to both Philly and Simon, we look forward to seeing you in September when we will return the well-fed Gully to his rightful owners.

Fire up the BBQ!

Julie Anderson has really impressed us with her knitted prawn skewer.  Julie attended our knitted prawn workshop with Angela Knipe back in July.  She went home to Bristol feeling inspired enough to knit us these amazing prawns and a fishing net full of langoustine to boot! If you’d like to see Julie’s langoustine, pop along to the museum on Saturday 15th September when we will reveal all!
