I am the author of Knitting from the Center Out: an Introduction to Revolutionary Knitting.

It’s amazing how two sticks, two stitches, and some string can be combined in so many innovative ways to make so many beautiful things.

I taught myself to knit at college in the early ’90s, fumbling over the illustrations in a teach-yourself book. A friend taught me to purl, and my obsession blossomed. Before long I was daydreaming over the stitch dictionary in the back of Vogue Knitting, and soon developed the designer’s habit of staring fixedly at my friends’ sweaters, muttering “knit, purl, knit, yarn-over, knit.” The more I learned, the more I wanted to know.

I believe that knitting is fundamentally good for the universe - every stitch we knit is an act of creativity. Knitting keeps our minds active and engaged, and the rhythmic, repetitive work with our hands is a natural anti-depressant. Most important, though, it’s really fun.

You can see more of what I’m up to at www.SuperFunKnits.com or www.revolutionaryknitting.com
