Knit a Poem

The Poetry Society celebrates it’s Centinary this year and part of the celebrations include the world’s first giant knitted poem.

Over 700 knitters from around the world are getting involved by knitting letters and blank squares in readiness for the grand unveiling of the top secret poem in October.
