Free pattern: Captain Cat-Battler the Scurvy Catnip Mouse

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarn! Me hearties! The notorious Captain Cat-Battler is a veteran of cat vs mouse conflict.

Captain Cat-Battler was designed specially for Battersea Dogs & Cats Home and their new Cat Knit project. The Battersea Home is one of my favourite...

Eating something you once knit a jumper for takes a guilt mastery that I have become shamefully skilled at. Nowadays I munch bacon butties without a thought for my porcine pal. Until...

London: The Fourth Plinth: “Knitting girl! Knitting girl!”

Yesterday morning I was art. It was all the fault of Mr Antony Gormley, whose cast-iron sculptures scared the bejesus out of half of London in 2007 by peering down from South Bank rooftops like rusty angels of death.
