Stitched Science

Here at Knit a Neuron Towers we're really looking forward to being part of Stitched Science at the Science Museum in London. There's so much on from stitching the solar system, to cross stitch emoticons and illusion knitting from our friends at Woolly Thoughts.

If you missed out on knitting a neuron, or want to make one for yourself - come along this weekend. It's free and we'd love to see you there!

Knitted MS is revealed

Our friends at the British Society for Immunology have spent a week knitting and nattering at the Times Cheltenham Science Festival.

We popped along over the weekend to join in the fun. It was really exciting to see so many knitters coming along to talk with Sandra, Nicola and David. Knitters talked about the latest research looking into stressed oligodendrocites, population dynamics, genetic links and living with MS. The finished tableaux look stunning and brightened up the stage on a rainy windy Sunday.
