Kirsti Johanson is a Jane Austen loving knitter who picked up the needles in 2004 and has not set them down since. She loves lace knitting, spinning, knitting with handspun, and creating new things to make.

When she is not holding the needles, she can be found hiking, camping, paddling, snowshoeing, enjoying musical theatre, and making up new things to stitch. In her real life grown up job, she is the Artistic Director at MadCAP (Madison Creative Arts Program), a school of the arts in Madison, WI, where she lives in a cottage in the woods in the city with her husband, piano, and lots and lots of wool.

Kirsti has been published in Spin Off Magazine, Jane Austen Knits 2011, and is self publishing her first book in 2012.
