Free Pattern: Blinkin’ Bookworm

Oi! Some little toerag’s been chewing its way through your library! There’s nibble marks around the edges of the first seven pages of Wuthering Heights and the last page of The Cat in the Hat appears to have been marinaded in a light soy sauce!

Who is responsible for this book-munching mischief? A Blinkin’ Bookworm with a pair of specs on? Well, you can’t very well hit a bug with glasses, can you? Better stock up on cheesy romance paperback snacks while he makes himself at home.

*blink blink*

Much to my own surprise, even though I have spent the last year locked away from the word scribbling like a mad thing and drowning in yarn, I have not one but two books out this month! Woot!

The first is the yarnstorming tome known as Knit the City, written and photographed by my Deadly Knitshade side.

The second is Stitch London, written by my Lauren O’Farrell side.

More on both of these soon.

To celebrate the release of my two ever-so-shiny books I’m releasing this free Blinkin’ Bookworm pattern into the wild just for you.

Knit him up and leave him somewhere bookish, whether its on your own bookshelf, munching through manuscripts at your local library or nibbling novels at your favourite book shop.


Mmm books...

You can also add any pictures of your Blinkin’ Bookworm’s journey to my Planet Whodunnknit group on Flickr. They’ll soon have their very own page on this blog so your knits can be admired by Whodunnknit visitors. Cool, no?

There are book launches coming too. Squeeeee! Watch this woolly space…
