Frank Wilmot learned how to knit in 2002 with "Learn to Knit in Just One Day" (ASN Publishing), a pair of aluminum needles, and a skein of the cheapest yarn he could find. He got hooked immediately and has been learning ever since. He is drawn to working with bold colors and stripes although he is also fond of working with more muted colors and naturals. The permission to be creative and to start designing came when he discovered Elizabeth Zimmerman in 2008. He has designed adult and baby hat patterns for Skacel, among others. He is also the coordinator and co-host of the annual Men's Rocky Mountain Knitting Retreat. Frank grew up in Karachi, Pakistan, and North Little Rock, Ark. He has lived in the Central African Republic, Nepal, New York City, Charlottesville, Va., Indianapolis and Denver. He currently resides in Denver with his partner Matt and is proud to work for the Denver Public Library as a reference librarian.
