Writer, traveller and giant squid wrestler, Lauren O'Farrell began her plans for world domination through a weaving of words and wool during a rather nasty three year battle with cancer.  She emerged from treatment victorious, slightly radioactive and unsettlingly ambitious.

In December 2005 she founded the UK's woolly Godzilla of a knitting group, Stitch London, which she still runs today, and gathered London's first graffiti yarnstorming collective Knit The City, in 2009.  Her personal knitting accomplishments include a corset for a week old piglet, a single sock knit at both the Taj Mahal and 3500-metres up the Himalayas, and 8-metre giant squid for London's Natural History Museum made from 160 plastic carrier bags.

She is also rumoured to be sneaky stitching graffiti knitter Deadly Knitshade, though she will neither confirm or deny this if you ask.
