The mainstream really does love a bit of yarnstorming at the moment.

The lovely Sofie Jenkinson just sent me this:

“Jamie & Louise on their Radio Wales morning show this morning chatted about the greatness of knitting & Louise decided it would be a good
idea to try to knit a massive scarf, to support Wales in the Six Nations. They’re trying to knit it big enough to go around the Millennium Stadium! More info: http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/radiowales/sites/jamieandlouise/
The stuff you need to know: Deadline – 31 Jan. You can knit on any size needles, with any wool, but it must be red and it must be 7” wide. How much you knit is up to you, the longer the better! Once finished, post it to Louise at BBC Radio Wales, Cardiff CF5 2YQ, and she’ll stitch them all together. Email jamieandlouise@bbc.co.uk with a photo of you with your knitting so they can create a gallery.
Louise and the team will then try their best to get the scarf on as many TV shows as they can – it’ll be your job to spot them on air!”

Cracking idea but it’ll never happen I’m afraid (if it does, I’ll eat a chocolate hat). One person sewing up something to fit around the stadium? Nah. Word on the street is that it took the Knit the City ladies about two weeks knitting just crazy just to cover a phone box, and it took over a day just to do the sewing up.

Ps. I know the title of this blog post makes me sound like a reet idiot. But I care not.
