Latitude 2009 & 2010

In 2009 we ventured to Latitude, which is 'more than just a music festival' and takes place near Southwold, in Suffolk. This was the first stop for our standalone knitting tent (and brand new marquee), and we were treated to a great pitch, next to the literature tent. 

The weather was mostly kind, and hordes of keen knitters dropped in to knit on the grass. Our project in 2009 was 'Knitted-Bunting-As-Carrier-Of-Fond-Memories': participants knitted a triangle, and/or shared a knitting- or knitwear-related memory on a mini postcard. 

In 2010 we returned to Latitude and invited people to contribute to our 'Wall of Knit' - an ever-growing installation of knitted fragments, hanging in space.
