Pratchgan 2008

The Pratchgan: As a member of the Ankh Morpork Knitter's Guild over on Ravelry, I was very excited to knit a square way back in January:

There have been endless discussions regarding the Pratchgan on Ravelry since January. One intrepid Guild member (Shirley, AKA Cherryred) collected and sewed all the squares together, added a lovely soft backing, and was allowed to present the Pratchgan to Mr. Terry Pratchett in person. It happened this Saturday at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, and I am still overwhelmed by the awesome of it all. Follow the links below to read more:
