Beth Whiteside
Beth is a knitting teacher, designer, and technical editor whose curiosity has led her to visit many countries (stranded color, EPS, k1b, lace, ...) on the knitting-world map. Originally from New England, she now lives in San Francisco, where mountains, ocean, and Haight Street are always good sources of inspiration. What she loves most about teaching is finding ways to make light bulbs pop on in her students' heads and helping them grow as knitters.
