CASSiE The Cosmic Hedgehog is the UK’s space mascot. She promotes the UK in space through Educational and public outreach as well as social media.

Follow CASSiE:

The wonderful Jennifer Dunham used a free downloadable pattern from the internet, but it’s only fair to promote the lady who put the pattern up there to be downloaded!

I look forward to seeing your Knitting!
