Her first book Designing Knitwear, in print since 1990, helps knitters develop a process for becoming a designer. In her latest, Finishing School, she shares her expertise on — and love of! — putting sweaters together. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where she also works at her family’s business, Maps For The Classroom.
