Gripping (knitted tentacle) kits coming on Tuesday, September 26!


Your Cart is Empty

Welcome—and thank you for ordering a Gripping kit!
Here is all the information you need to knit your books and access your self-paced, guided knit-along!

The following video takes you through my process of creating these books, and it's filmed in a supportive style so that you have nice music and visuals, with a minimum of me talking to the camera. 😉

Watch it while making your Bookmarked knitted books to feel like we're knitting together!
