As part of the Homecoming festival (a year of events to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns and to encourage people worldwide to get in touch with their Scottish heritage) a textile art group from the North West of Scotland are inviting Scots, ex-pats, Scotophiles and anyone else that’s interested to take part in an ambitious guerilla knitting project to cover the Skye Bridge, which links the Isle of Skye with the mainland, in knitting. Contributions of knitting are welcome until September 2009 – more info on the dimensions of knitting pieces required and how to get involved can be found on the Knit the Skye Bridge website.
