Here's a few pictures I took to illustrate just how huge a project this really is:
A lovely stitcher breaking her back to get the project done in time!
A ridiculously long (9.5 metre) line from the poem.
Just two of the many lines of the poem rolled up and ready to be sewn together into stanzas.
As far as I know, the first opportunity to see the finished poem will be at the British Library piazza on Wednesday - so fingers crossed it doesn't rain, right?
I will be far away in Bavaria, so won't be able to see it finished in person sadly. Leaving way too early tomorrow morning, but looking forward to the mountains, beer and yarn-hunting. Mmmmm....
