Carol’s focus is on writing; her most recent book is Yarn Substitution Made Easy (Sterling 2019) and she’s also written books about handpainted sock yarns, working with fine gauge yarns, and self-striping yarns. Carol is fascinated by the place where knitting meets history; she distilled some of her favorite factoids and historical anecdotes in her book Knitting Ephemera. Look for her articles in Vogue Knitting, Noro Magazine, Craft Industry Alliance’s journal, and other magazines. She is currently offering online classes and lectures through VK Virtual.
When she’s not knitting, Carol enjoys reading mysteries, regencies, and nonfiction; quilting; tracing her family tree; and walking on a nearby trail. She lives with her three nearly-grown kids and her cat outside Philadelphia. She blogs on a semi-occasional basis at Black Bunny Fibers.
