I visited Japan in April 2011 and it was the best thing I’ve ever done. I highly recommend you all go. I was there 2 weeks after the earthquake & tsunami and I didn’t die or go radioactive. Please go to Japan and support the country and its wonderful, wonderful people.

Photo: I bought all these socks in Tokyo.
I bought all these socks in Toyko

One of the many amazing things I saw in Japan were the hosiery shops. Oh, my, goodness. The future of socks is an exciting place to be.

I tried to find somewhere in the UK to feed this new sock hunger but only one shop does it and they are far, far too many beans for me.

So I started designing & making my own socks inspired by the ones I saw in Japan. And I now sell them to other people wanting to join in but not being able to afford 22 beans for one pair of socks.

Please buy my socks.

Photo: sample 'Story on a Postcard'

Also over on Etsy I sell these neat Story on a Postcards.

Handcrafted, individual short stories written on the back of a postcard.

I really enjoy writing these. Give me a topic or character names or a location and I’ll write something unique delivered to your door.

Crobots!

(Crochet Robots)

ALSO I just learned to crochet things and when I showed Twitter they went BALLISTIC§ and it practically crashed the servers. Have a look at them, why not.
