Contributors Ann Budd I used to be an assistant professor of Classics, which means I can read ancient Greek and Latin—an almost entirely useless skill in the 21st century. Now I knit and spin whenever two rambunctious kittens allow (I’m trying to teach them, with limited success so far, that Yarn Is Not A Toy). I live in a drafty old house on the foggy side of San Francisco, where it is rarely too warm to wear wool. On Ravelry: ksh

Paula Emons-Fuessle Knitting is my passion! I learned to knit in Denmark and then found Elizabeth Zimmermann's books. I share my passion on my weekly podcast, Knitting Pipeline, available on iTunes and at www.knittingpipeline.com. Another big part of my life is playing bagpipes with Celtic Cross Pipes and Drums, a competition and performance band in Peoria, Illinois. I've had my own home business for 30 years which has allowed me flexibility to pursue many interests. When I'm not knitting or playing the pipes I enjoy walking for health and fitness, studying birds and nature, and reading. Each of my designs is the result of wanting to knit a particular item and working it out. My favorite designs are ones that give the impression of being complicated to knit but really are quite simple. I live with my husband by a woods in Central Illinois where we enjoy nature every single day. You can find me on Ravelry as PrairiePiper and as moderator of the Knitting Pipeline Group.

Bristol Ivy Bristol Ivy is a knitting designer from Portland, Maine whose work focuses on the intersection between classic tailoring and innovative technique. When not designing, she works behind the scenes at Brooklyn Tweed, writes the knitting market analysis blog The Stock(inette) Market, and spends as much time as possible surrounded by wool.

Marnie MacLean Marnie MacLean has been knitting and crocheting all her life but only took up designing after she moved from New England to the west coast in 2001. She now lives in Oregon with her husband and three dogs where they all enjoy frequent trips to the dog friendly beaches, throughout the state. Marnie works as a business analyst during the day and works as a production assistant for Twist Collective at night. You can read all about her dogs, her knitting and more at MarnieMacLean.com.

Leila Raabe Leila is a member of the Brooklyn Tweed team and resides in Maine, where she oversees operations at BT's Portland satellite offices. She enjoys seeking out the abundant inspiration to be found around town, incorporating patterns and textures from local architecture and nature into her work. While firmly believing that there is a style of knitting out there for everyone, it's simple, clean designs with an emphasis on structured balance that are her favorite. Ravelry: EraLunaris 15
