Wendy Bernard is a knitwear designer based in Southern California. She is the author of the Custom Knits series of books in which she shares flexible garment patterns along with techniques for personalizing them as you go, plus three groundbreaking stitch dictionaries with instructions for working stitch patterns in multiple directions: Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary, The Knitting All Around Stitch Dictionary, and Japanese Stitches Unraveled.
Years ago, intrigued with the self-patterning sock yarn at her LYS, Wendy decided to embark on her first pair of socks following the directions in a Leisure Arts booklet. Since then she has made at least a hundred pairs. You can keep up with Wendy at her blog, Knit and Tonic.
