Having seen a brilliant knit commission at Kew, I hastily emailed my proposal and just got in before the deadline. I was pleased to hear I’d been shortlisted, one of four from a much larger than expected bundle of submissions.
Unfortunately I heard today that I wasn’t successful, but hey, I’m just happy to have been considered. I think it’s great that Kew are embracing yarnbombing for such a high profile event as their summer festival and I wish the successful knitter all the best, I’m sure it will look amazing.
Here’s my tree cosy design that took their eye….
