Faina is a prolific knitwear designer, author, and a professional teacher. She is the co-author of best-selling book The Art of Seamless Knitting (F+W/Interweave 2013) and her 3rd book will be available in August of 2015.
Her designs can be found in Vogue Knitting, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Twist Collective, Interweave Crochet, and various books. Her class Sizing Knitwear Patterns is one the most popular classes on Carftsy.com.
Faina is best known for her elegant and well-fitted classic designs showing off textures, cables, brioche, and slip stitch techniques.
Working as a design engineer and later teaching college math for many years did not distract her from her passion for knitwear design and knitting and crocheting in general.
She is fascinated with many knitting techniques and loves to teach them at many different venues including Stitches, Madrona Festival, Knitting Lab, knitting guilds, and local yarn shops around the country and abroad.
