Kooky little knits, words and pix

Coming events

Oooo, look! It’s that Deadly Knitshade from off the internets!

I’m likely to appear all over the place. So I made it easier to stalk me.

If you get too close though my winged knitting machete monkeys will have you.

  • Event: Midsummer Knit's Dream at the Royal Academy on the 21 June, 2014:

    midsummer_knitsThe lovely folks at the Royal Academy have invited me to yarnstorm their elegant arty foyer for their Midsummer Night's Fete.

    There's a whole lot of other marvellous stuff you can join in with on the night too from Art Macabre's 'Death Drawing' to a silent disco and a Letterpress workshop from Mr Smith.

  • Event: Yarnstorm Bootcamp - Isle of Wight on the 19 October, 2012:



    For the first time ever you can join two of Knit the City’s most hardcore handmade heroes, dastardly Deadly Knitshade and fibre-flinging The Fastener for a weekend of woolly mischief on the wonderful Isle of Wight.

    You’ll arrive a humble handmaker, you’ll go home a certified Graffiti Yarnstormer or die trying (or was that tie-dying?).

    Plarchie in Berlin - Plarchie, Statue 3 and mini Susanne

    Places are open to both knitters and crocheters who already know how to stitch but wish to learn the way of the yarnstorm.

    The Yarnstorm Bootcamp will take place from October 19 to 21 2012 and there's a ton of lovely stuff included.
