Early in her career Kirsten Kapur worked in ready to wear as both an apparel and textile designer. During those years she gained a strong knowledge of garment construction as well as surface design, a combination of skills that led to designing knitwear which requires both. Kirsten particularly loves exploring the intersection of color and texture in design. Her most recent book is Kirsten Kapur Shawl Book One. Kirsten's independently designs can be found online on Ravelry and her website www.kirstenkapurdesigns.com. She has had patterns published in many other publications including Knitty, Ply, Knit Simple, Vogue Knitting, KnitScene, Knit to Flatter, Loop's 10, Malabrigo Book 4, Brave New Knits, Knitting it Old School, My Grandmother's Knitting, Craft Activism, Weekend Hats, and Fair Isle Style among others.
As a designer, Mary Lou Egan specializes in accessible projects simple enough for a less-experienced knitter to accomplish but that also give experienced knitters a chance to relax and knit: while waiting at the doctor's office, reading the subtitles in a movie, or hanging out with friends. Based in St. Paul, Minnesota, she teaches in the nationally-known shop, the Yarnery and at other shops and fiber festivals. The insight gained from teaching plus working the shop's free knitters' clinic has given her insight in ways to address the challenges knitters face with many designs and patterns. Mary Lou is the author of Wearwithall: Knits for Your Life, ranked as an all-time best-seller by Unicorn. Her designs have appeared in Knitty, Craft Activism, and Shear Spirit. Her line of self-published patterns are sold at yarn stores nation-wide, as well as on Ravelry and Patternfish.
