Ann Budd

Unlike Betty Crocker, Ann Budd is a real person. But her name is equally legendary to knitters, thanks to her classic Knitter’s Handy Book series, which make it easy for knitters to design garments to their own specifications. Ann is particularly known for her mastery of sock knitting and design, and teaches sold-out workshops across the country and abroad. Ann lives in Boulder, Colorado. You can find her at
