Very early on Saturday morning the blanket square and I took a train to Waterloo.
We met lots of lovely One and Other organisers and they put us in a big yellow cherry picker and we rode across Trafalgar Square - flanked by security
The big yellow cherry picker went really high, and the plinth was quite small!
From here on, you can view my video on the One and Other site. You can see me knitting, waving to people, saying hello and taking photos!
Pete made me a P-Hop banner, I tried to spell P-Hop with the squares but they kept blowing away!
Thank you to the many people I know who watched, from in the square and on the internet - thank you everyone for your support. It was great knowing there was lots of Ravelry chat going on whilst I was up there and that my friends were watching.
I could see the p/hop guys and fellow knitters through the mesh.
Pete got a sock lesson - that $500 sponsorship is getting closer. £75 has been donated because of my plinth efforts too, which is fabulous!
The square wanted a photo with the sights
And so did I!
Best of all a work colleage of a friend (who I've never met before) came armed with a banner - Rooknits Rules - apparently! Thanks Krysta!
Pete has a sneaky interview with me on the p/hop website here
Today Heather and I gathered all of the squares together here is what they look like so far (the duplicates are in piles - we have about 90 in total) and they are going to make two mean blankets for p/hop.
