  • So…in the small world department, I’ve just finished writing a piece on an Akkadian class for the alumni magazine of the university where I work. Too funny.

    But really, everything about this interview is inspiring–from Weaver’s disparate career journey to her influences to her low to nearly zero profile on social media to her gorgeous, gorgeous patterns. I’m really drawn to Neiman, Woodbrook, and Sparrows Point (maybe because my grandfather worked there). Ann, if you’re reading, I think I want to be you.

  • I will just say that my Albers scarf (the cowl grown two squares bigger), is the single most complimented- by- strangers item of knitwear in my fast collection. (It is also the perfect road trip project)

  • Ann is an amazing teacher, as well – enthusiastic, knowledgeable and patient. Students love her!

  • I am so glad that you brought Ann Weaver to my attention. What fresh, original designs she has created. Thanks!

  • Nice piece! In defense of Kate Davies, however, I do not think her Book of Haps at all “weird.” It’s a wonderful combination of the history of the simple shawls/wraps of the Shetland Island with numerous contemporary patterns, all beautifully photographed.

    • Hi, Madeline! I meant “weird” in the most complimentary way. Perhaps in the case of haps “niche” would be a better term.

  • Hello Adrienne, So great to see you here at MDK! I love your writing. Cyndi Lee

    • Thanks so much, Cyndi! I’m happy to be here. Hope you are well.

  • I love Ms Martini because she has a corgi (apparently) and has posted a picture of it for the rest of us to enjoy! Corgis are the best and I dearly wish I had one now.

    • I do have a corgi! Her name is Her Royal Highness Lucy Waddlesworth, which is a hazard of letting your kids name the dog. We just call her Lucy, tho. She is a lovely dog, who can be a total butt when the mood strikes her….
