A perfect woollen gift for the SEVENTH anniversary

In the UK on a seventh anniversary the traditional gift is one made of wool. So considering it’s the SEVENTH anniversary of Galaxy Zoo TODAY (July 11th) our very own, super talented Karen Masters has knitted us the Galaxy Zoo logo!


If you feel like getting your astronomical knit on for this momentous occasion, here’s a few inspirational photo’s.

Karen also knitted our favourite Penguin Galaxy as a birthday present for the lovely Alice :



And check out the skills of Jen Greaves and the NAM Knitters who knitted a WHOLE GALAXY CLUSTER at this year’s National Astronomy Meeting in Portsmouth:



For those of you itching to stretch your creative muscles but haven’t been struck by that bolt of inspiration yet, here’s a KNITTING PATTERN (a first I believe for the Galaxy Zoo blog) for the Galaxy Zoo logo to keep you busy…

    For any keen knitters – I have posted the pattern on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/knitted-galaxy-zoo-logo
    I’d love to see your comments on it if you end up making it. My first attempt at writing a pattern actually!

    And the penguin is a pattern I found on Ravelry too. 🙂 It’s the Ball Penguin: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/klmasters/ball-penguin
