Hi, I'm Madeleine - a textile artist/maker who also takes photographs and writes stories. Most of my work has its roots in science, maths or science fiction. The name Knot Unktnot has a specific mathematical meaning but it also reflects a lot of of the activity in my studio - knotting/knitting yarn and untangling stuff too. Have a look around the site and if you like what you what you see you can interact with me and my work using the lists below.

Exhibits and events
  • Saturday 1 June Creators Hall at Cymera Festival, The Pleasance Courtyard, Edinburgh. Space knitting and Alba ad Astra merch is coming to Scotland's science fiction, fantasy and horror festival for one day only! Come and say hi and maybe even buy.
  • Saturday 8 June Earth in Common x EOW Makers Market at Edinburgh Open Workshop,39 – 41 Assembly Street, Leith EH6 7BQ. I'll be offering a mix of my nerdy knitting products and some special items inspired by Leith as it's the start of the Leith Festival that day.

I'm delighted to have feature article in issue 5 of The Journal of Scottish Yarns. Order a copy here.

Online shopping
  • Pop-up online shop on Folksy! Closed at the moment but back in early June.
  • Print-on-demand t-shirts, cards and posters. Not all of my projects are knitted! Shop here for items created from my cyanotype photography and science-fiction images (including Alba ad Astra). Everything is printed to order using ecofriendly materials in Teemill's sustainable factory on the Isle of Wight, UK.

Classes and workshops
Ever fancied trying out machine knitting? Well, now you can! I am teaching beginners' workshops at The Edinburgh Remakery. The next set of dates are being planned just now. More details and other sessions on the classes and workshops page,

These are bricks and mortar, real life places where you can buy a small selection of my work.
