sheep swap is baaaack!

To commemorate Derek the Sheep's retirement from The Beano, my fab studio mate Gary Northfield and I have picked up a comics jam we left dangling about a year ago. You can't keep a good sheep down! Thanks for the Derek tribute over on the Forbidden Planet International blog. We ♥ Derek and Vern.

Head right on over to The Fleece Station blog to read the whole comic... go on!

And Derek's also resurfacing in the theatre! Gary wrote the stage play and Legend Theatre will be producing it. You can see it right here at our studio in southeast London on Sunday, 24 July, at New Cross Turn Left and from 9-13 August at Abbeyfest in southwest London.

To crochet or not to crochet

There's so much great stuff coming into the Fleece Station today! Here's a crocheted skull by Kimberly Baars of Chemistry and Cloth. I love the brains. 'Yarn for brains', that's a good knitter insult.

Check out the other amazing things that my fab studio mate Deadlyknitshade is cataloguing here as they arrive for Stitch London's Stitched Science exhibition at London's Science Museum. Amazing!

Oo, here's another skull made of pompoms...
