Have you ever hear of the ‘Sciarpa Infinita’?
The ‘Endless Scarf’ is the scarf that the Knit Cafè in Florence at the shop Essère started 2 years ago. They have knitter knitted and crocheted and crocheted (the scarf has two ends one is knitting the other crochet) and they have promoted it and asked for help to all the knitters and crocheters they have bumped into and little by little the ‘Endless Scarf’ has become so famous that journalists have written articles about it, TV programmes have hosted it on their show and exhibitions have created a space for it to allow people to knit their bit.
Last Saturday Knittable, the Knit Cafè in Pisa, Italy has hosted the Endless Scarf during the session of knitting that has given start to our June appointments in the context of Giugno Pisano. Ilaria Tolossi from Essère, the Knit Cafè in Florence has taken with her the Endless Scarf carrying the huge pink suitcase containing it to the Lungarno Pacinotti where we have laid the scarf on the parapet of the Arno River.
It was fun, people started looking at us trying to understand what was going on and after a few minutes ladies passing by stopped, amused, to knit and crochet their bit.
The scarf is more than 100 meters long!
Thank you very much Ilaria!
