Stitched Science

This weekend the Science Museum played host to some truly excellent stitching skills, thanks to Stitch London.

With knitting classes, cross-stitch classes, a giant knitted solar system, and contributions from all over the world, it was an impressive array of stitchy science know-how. Here’s a brief glimpse of some of the wonders on display:
