Returns from our travels

Phew! A busy few days what with the BIG Event and Indietracks. It was great to meet so many people interested in the project. Lots of folk have gone off with patterns and ideas for getting their group knitting neurons. We're looking forward to hearing about how it all goes - do send us pictures so we can share.

A few thanks to everyone who's made things happen. Anne's family and friends, Alice and the BIG exec who accepted our proposals to contribute to the various events, Gill for crocheting a lovely green neuron (pictures to follow), Phil for learning to knit just so he could make a lovely blue neuron, Dave for a great idea for next year's Indietracks (watch out Alice!) and of course, everyone who came along to the events to knit and natter about neurons.

Next stop - Green Man!

From BIG to Indietracks

We're on our way to Indietracks! Fresh from sharing our enthusiasm for all things woolly and sciencey at the BIG Event KAN are on the train to Derbyshire. The sun is shining and we are keeping our fingers crossed that it stays that way.

Here are a couple of the lovely folk from the Centre for Life. Watch out for knitted neurons in Newcastle!

Knit a Neuron goes to the BIG Event

Amongst all the excitement of Indietracks we nearly forgot to mention that we're sharing our project with the lovely folk at BIG. It's their annual get together (also known as the BIG Event) this week and seeing as we were laden up for Indietracks we thought we'd spread the word.

We like BIG a lot - they're a grand bunch of folk who do interactive science communication stuff and we think that knitting woolly neurons will be right up their street.

Last minute preparation for IndieTracks

We're packing our rucksacks and airing our sleeping bags in readiness for our trip to IndieTracks. Amongst all the tent pegs, roll mats and yarn we even had time for an interview. You can read it here on the IndieTracks blog.

Hope to see you there!
