Marlaina “Marly” Bird fled the world of financial services to launch her Yarn Thing podcast and hasn’t looked back since. To Marly, a bi-craftsy girl who both knits and crochets, the yarn is the star, not how you work with it.
She’s the co-author of Curvy Crochet (Leisure Arts, 2011), I Can’t Believe I’m Knitting Entrelac (Leisure Arts, 2014), and Knitting for Dummies 3rd ed.(Wiley, 2013). Marly is also National Spokesperson for Red Heart Yarns and you’ve seen her designs in Love of Knitting, Love of Crochet, Knitter’s, Knit Simple, Interweave Crochet, Knitscene, Inside Crochet, Wild Fiber and Petite Purls, and in many collaboration knitting and crochet books. In her spare time she raises three kids with her husband in suburban Denver.
Marly has 3 classes available on Craftsy.com-- Curvy Crochet, Curvy Knits, Mittens & Gloves Galore. She also has several classes available at Creativebug.com
