About the Author

Ann Budd first learned to knit in 1968 when living in Switzerland for a year with her family. At the time, knitting was part of the curriculum for all schoolgirls. Back in the United States, Ann continued to knit through her high-school, college, and graduate years, when she earned a master’s degree in Geology. In 1989, Ann decided to forego the sciences and pursue her passion for knitting and fiber-related crafts when she began working as an editorial assistant for Handwoven magazine. Through the years, Ann worked as a book editor and managing editor of Interweave Knits magazine. Since 2002, Ann has authored or co-authored more than eight books, including the popular Knitter's Handy Book series, Getting Started Knitting Socks, and several books in the Style series. Ann continues to edit craft books for Interweave as well as author her own books.

Pam Allen has been part of the hand-knitting industry since 1985, and joined Classic Elite Yarns in May 2007. Until 2003, when she was hired as editor of Interweave Knits, her designs were published regularly in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, and Knitters. Her work was also featured in general interest magazines—Family Circle, Better Homes and Gardens, and Woman’s Day—and in Melanie Falick’s book Knitting in America (1996) and Vogue Knitting/American Collection (2000). She is the author of Knitting for Dummies and Scarf Style, and the co-author of 4 other titles in the Style series published by Interweave Press. As editor of Interweave Knits, Pam worked with established hand-knitwear designers such as Norah Gaughan, Mari Lynn Patrick, and Deborah Newton, and she also encouraged new-generation designers such as Veronik Avery and Kate Gilbert. As creative director at CEY, Pam continues to work with these and other talented and well-known hand-knitwear designers, including up-and-coming blogger and designer Jared Flood. She also continues to be published not only in CEY’s semi-annual collection of best selling pattern booklets, but also in major knitting magazines, and e-zines, such as Twist Collective and knitty.com.
