Vicky Eames (aka Wife of Brian) started knitting beards about three years ago, and hasn’t stopped since. The original beard was made for a friend, but proved so popular that her shop Wife of Brian was born, along with moustaches, eyebrows and other fuzzy delights. Vicky’s proper job is in theatre, which means she has lots of creative inspiration for her designs, as well as like-minded people to humour her. Some of Vicky’s beardy creations are currently starring in a Shakespearean production. Having previously attained a degree in Mathematics, Vicky believes her balance of geek and artist was inevitably going to lead her to such bonkers endeavours as designing entertaining knitted treats.
