Giant graffiti knitted monster braves London's rain
In the ultimate London graffiti knitting yarnstorm, Deadly Knitshade (rumoured, quite rightly to be Lauren O'Farrell) has released Muncher the knitted monster into the wild for the BT ArtBox event. The event celebrates 25 years of the NSPCC's Childline charity and also hopes to highlight a British icon, with over 80 customised boxes around the city.
Muncher the monster will be on the roundabout in the heart of the city from now until July 16th 2012. He's so far survived 9 days in one of London's busiest areas and a fair few rain storms. According to reports from the maker he is holding up well and welcomes hugs from all comers, as long as you promise to treat him nicely. He's a charity craft monster after all.
Follow Muncher's progress by checking out the Muncher the Monster page over at Whodunnknit, checking the #muncherthemonster tag on Instagram and following pics on the Whodunnknit Facebook page and @deadlyknitshade on Twitter.
