Who-dunnknit? A woolly celebration of 50 years of Doctor Who

One for the hipsters: Snake-Ridden Snapper

When the fine folks at Lomography asked me to use my woolly magic to customise one of their fabulous new Lomography DIY Sardina cameras I shouted “HELL YES!” at them rather to loudly. The Snake-ridden Snapper was born…

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

Whole lotta mouse-making going on

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…
