Candace Eisner Strick
Candace Eisner Strick has immersed herself in music and knitting most of her life. Now retired from 16 years of teaching cello, she concentrates on designing, writing, and teaching knitting.
Her book, Strick-ly Socks, features a revolutionary and amazingly simple way of knitting socks. Candace is the author of 6 other books, has been published in numerous magazines, and has taught nationally and internationally since 1998. She is the creator of her own line of yarn, Merging Colors, and her own line of patterns under the name of Strickwear (www.strickwear.com).
Candace's students say they not only love learning from her classes, but thoroughly enjoy her sense of humor as well. Appropriately, strick means to knit.
