Yes, my lovely internet stalkers, Stitch New York is unexpectedly alive! Guffawing the in face of the January 2013 release date, Stitch New York actually hit the shops last week! Woo hoo!

Knitting pattern: The Killing – Little Knitted Sarah Lund

Knitting pattern: The Killing – Little Knitted Sarah Lund

Little Knitted Sarah Lund, is a handknitted version of the hardworking, jumper-wearing, tenacious detective lady from stabby Danish TV drama The Killing (Forbrydelsen for those who speak Danish out there). She’s made from yarn but that doesn’t mean she’s soft and squishy, oh no. She’ll unravel the mystery of the murder even if it means no sleep for a week and wearing ‘that jumper’ the whole time, and she won’t move to Sweden until she does.

Handmade Little My needs a home

Handmade Little My needs a home

Little My is a feisty thing and possibly my favourite character from Tove Jansson’s Moomin stories. She knows what she likes, she’s not afraid to say what she thinks and, best of all, deep down she has a squidgy heart of gold.

She appeared on my needles one night and now you can win her.
