Meet Madame Tricot, The Fun-Loving Psychiatrist Who Uses Knitting To Heal Trauma

Meet Madame Tricot, The Fun-Loving Psychiatrist Who Uses Knitting To Heal Trauma

If you’re a regular around here, you’ve seen Madame Tricot’s artistic knitting through the years – like her kooky genetics lab, and her realistic knitted meat – so I’m over-the-moon to be able to put a face to her work with this Great Big Story. And honestly, could you love her more? She is deeee-lightful!

I love how she talks about using knitting to heal trauma … she’s so right on.
