Just when you think there couldn’t possibly be more mice to knit they keep multiplying. A family of six mice can turn into about 60 mice within 6 months, and it seems my mouse patterns are just the same. Here’s a peek at more of my mouse patterns…

Free pattern: Stitched Slake Moth + Plarchie meets China Mieville

Slake Moths, from China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station, feed on people’s dreams, they excrete nightmare-making invisible poo, and they leave their victims behind as drooling hunks of human vegetable.

So what would make a more perfect tribute to Mr Mieville’s monsters than to immortalise them in lovely squishy yarn, I ask you?

Introducing Little knitted Nel (and how you can win her!)

I don’t make comics but I love them. In fact I love them so much that I share a studio with three fabulous comic creators (one of whom is my lovely boyfriend). So when all three of them took part in creating one of the most fabulous graphic novels the world has ever laid eyeballs on I was incredibly proud to watch it all happen. Nelson is a graphic novel created by a herd of British comics’ brightest stars. It tells the story of the main character, Nel Baker, from birth to the present, told by 54 amazing artists. Even better all...

Plucky the Protest Mouse vs The Fat Cats

Sometimes you have to make a stand. Even when you’re less than 10cm tall and a handknitted mouse. Maybe especially when you’re 10cm tall and a handknitted mouse. You may only be one teeny tiny squeak but maybe if you squeak up when things are unjust then someone will hear you and stand with you. And if enough of you are standing then you might start changing things for the better. This is the tale of one little Protest Mouse who stood up and squeaked. Why a Protest Mouse was born Up until this point I’ve not really been a...

Knits on Titchmarsh (or Plarchie meets Daytime TV)

The Alan Titchmarsh Show on October 6th was all about knitting. Hence calling on the so-called ‘Banksies of knitting’ (according to Alan’s pre-amble) myself and the good Perri Lewis. And they didn’t just want us.
