    About the Author Artist, writer, and obsessive knitter Susie Johns is simply bursting with creativity. Although she can adapt her skills to a wide range of crafts, she prefers embroidery, knitting, crochet, collage, drawing and watercolor painting – particularly when it involves recycling and reinventing. Johns has had many of her features and interviews published in a wide range of magazines, in addition to writing and illustrating a number of books, including the recent Knitted Finger Puppets (GMC Publications). If that’s not enough, Susie also takes the time to teach her skills to others in the UK.
