As with many Irish children, Carol Feller learned to knit in primary school and spent many years knitting cardigans for her dolls and occasionally herself. There is a strong history of crafting in her family; her mother sewed much of her clothes, her grandmother was an expert knitter and her aunt ran a knitting shop in Dublin.
Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. The influences can be seen in her design work which is well shaped, flattering to wear and fun to knit. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.
Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fiber festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customization right through to short rows and colorwork. Her website is Stolen Stitches.
