Join me, steampunk scribbler extraordinaire Gail Carriger, Plarchie the squid, Cooey the Pigeon (armed with her very own tiny and lethal parasol) for an evening of steampunky book signing and giant squid.
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.
I heart hounds. I really do. Snoopy is my Yoda, Hong Kong Phooey is my Mr Miyagi, and when I was little I wanted to grow up to be The Littlest Hobo. So when Battersea Dogs & Cats Home got in touch to ask me to create another free knitting pattern for them, this time […]
Once upon a time there was a blue-haired knitter who was asked to go on BBC News to talk about knitting. EEK! A story of bright yarn, snarky beasts and happiness.

So what would make a more perfect tribute to Mr Mieville’s monsters than to immortalise them in lovely squishy yarn, I ask you?
It was only a matter of time before it happened: China Miéville, world famous fantasy fiction writer with a soft spot for giant squid, and Plarchie, the most infamous crafty Kraken ever knitted, in the same place at the same time. What manner of madness will be unleashed when these two steampunk giants collide?
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 […]
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. […]
