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.
