About the Author

Kathleen Dames focuses on flattering designs and knitterly details for the garments and accessories she creates for her own pattern line, as well as publications such as Knitty, Jane Austen Knits, and Interweave Knits. From her first large-scale knitting project (a poncho from Melanie Falick's Weekend Knitting), she has been making patterns her own, thanks to her personal style and the wisdom of Elizabeth Zimmermann. Kathleen is cocreator of Filament, a quarterly knitting pattern collection filled of modern classics and a vintage sensibility, with Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka Fibers. She hosts the podcast The Sweater with Kathleen Dames on YouTube, where you will learn to knit a sweater in twelve weeks. Kathleen worked as an art director in book publishing for many years prior to embarking on a career in knitwear design. Having celebrated #tenyearsanewyorker in late 2017, she has lived there long enough to be a New Yorker but is still excited by all the wonders the city holds.

Alice has always been a maker. A serious dyed in the wool, hot glue burns on her fingertips, glitter in her eyebrows maker. So when she first thought about dyeing yarn, it was in the context of making stuff to support her knitting habit. She fired up her first dye pot and wow, was it not what she expected. True to form, she did no research. It was way too light and way too dark and way too not what was expected. But, also true to form, she kept trying. Alice threw a few more skeins in the pot. She read a few (okay a lot, she works at a library) of books about dyeing and yarn and how the two work together. Alice joined Ravelry groups and marveled at everyone else's perfect skeins. She started stalking hand-dyers on Instagram and Etsy. And then slowly she started getting more predictable results. More repeatable colorways. And it turns out she loved playing with color as much as she loved playing with yarn. And that's how Backyard Fiberworks began. Check out more of her yarn at www.backyardfiberworks.com
