Of course if life consisted of only mathematics, we'd all die of boredom like poor Neville (if you haven't read The Gashlycrumb Tinies by Edward Gorey I strongly suggest you do so; I keep a copy in my office). Since April of 2004, I've been addicted to crochet, knitting, spinning, dyeing and pretty much anything fibre-related. I'm an avid fan of upsetting "normal" society, and so I engage in Radical Knitting whenever possible. You can read my Manifesto.

Knitting and other Craft Projects (Past and Present)

Not an encyclopaedic cataologue of things I've done, but more of a whirlwind tour of things I've created. Dominated by knitting, some crochet, some weaving and a few things which don't fit any of these.

Tips and Techniques

I'll probably be running a Radical Knitting workshop some time in the future, so keep an eye out if you're keen. Until then, you can see some basic information on my learn to knit (pdf) sheet. I do plan on adding to this section, but I'm quite busy presently.


Until I get organised and type the rest of my patterns, you can download the following (all in .pdf format):
