Kathleen Lawton-Trask

I’ve been knitting since I was a teenager, at first off and on, and then with an obsessive fervor to which I’m sure the rest of you can relate. I have taught knitting to lots of different kinds of people, both casually and at fibre space in Alexandria, Virginia.

I live in Oxford, England, with my husband, our feisty toddler daughter, and a beleaguered cat named Gertrude. I am writing my doctoral dissertation on 18th century women’s poetry, particularly mock-heroic poems about domestic work. My only regret about the topic is that there aren’t more poems about knitting.

My books Silver Screen Knits, Volumes One and Two celebrate the films and stars of classic Hollywood: Lauren Bacall, Audrey and Katharine Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, Gene Kelly, and many more.

A host of amazing designers have contributed to the books: Ann Weaver, Susanna IC, Tanis Gray, Veera VΓ€limΓ€ki, Danielle Romanetti, Karida Collins, Becky Wolf, and little old me.

When my stash gets too big, I give it away on my blog. Seriously! I do! Go check.
