Had a brilliant Saturday with Mel and Sue - we took part in I Knit London's Knitting Treasure Hunt!
There were all sorts of different challenges:
We had to find 10 sheep around London (pub signs/statues/painting etc)and answer the corresponding 5 questions at each location
We had to collect some treasure including
Photograph knitting with a pigeon
Photograph knitting with a policeman
Photograph knitting in a red phone box
Photograph with knitting on a statue
Photograph knitting with a celebrity
Photographs with us knitting at London landmarks beginning with:
F - Fountains
L - Lions
E - Eye (London Eye)
E - Embankment
C - Covent Garden
E - Elgin Marbles
We had to buy souvenirs beginning with:
W - Wimbledon Tube Sign
O - Oxford Street Keyring
O - Ran out of time!
L - London Tea
And a postcard with a sheep on it!
On top of all that we also had to fill in the gaps of tube stations / find which letters came from which street signs in Lower Marsh and protect our balloon from being popped by other teams (it was a 5 point bonus if you returned with it intact).
Finally we had to knit a scarf as long as possible during the day!
Overall I think we did really well, especially as we managed to have a lovely lunch in between. And well done to Mel for keeping the balloon safe from attack all day!
