How knitting became the new normal between shows on the BBC

I loved seeing these fab women and their colourful chunky yarns on the BBC. Really cheered me up 🙂

We were very excited when the BBC introduced their new social distancing “idents” for BBC1 – that’s the little videos that pop up before programmes – a group of knitters started appearing regularly on our screens.

We decided to find out more about the knitters involved. We asked Sicgmone Kludje and Vea Koranteng from Black Girl Knit Club to tell us more.

The BBC researchers and producers got in contact with us after seeing our online presence such as our social media accounts and website.

They then updated us about the Oneness ident project and its focus on showing people getting creative during UK lockdown and we were excited to get involved.
