brits knit for kits

The Victoria and Albert Museum -- a terrific place and one I greatly look forward to revisiting some spring soon -- has one of the most forward-thinking and involved websites I have ever seen for such an institution.

They love to get people involved. Easy to do, perhaps, when your museum celebrates small, personally-scaled arts such as jewelry, clothing, and book illustration. But then, knitters love company, don't they? And they love to stretch (you should pardon the expression) their knitting.

Into, say, cat beds. Cat toys. An icon of Flying Spaghetti Monster which also makes a most excellent toy. Cats surely find this an appropriate celebration of their traditional accoutrement of yarn.
It makes for comfy chairs too.
