About the Author

Hannah Simpson's first knitting project at the age of six, a misshapen and holey scarf, was terrifying for all the wrong reasons; she has since had a lot of practice. A die-hard fan of horror and science fiction, she eventually combined her interests, leaving behind the traditional world of knitting to create armies of knitted zombies and classic horror characters, which have appeared in print worldwide.

Think knitting's just for your nan? Think again. SFX Magazine A great creative range of patterns ... Overall I think this is a great little book and is one from which I'll certainly keep knitting The British Fantasy Society
