Elizabeth Zimmermann (August 9, 1910-November 30, 1999), affectionally called EZ by knitters, is practically a goddess among knitters and could easily be dubbed the "Mother of Modern Knitting." Mrs. Zimmermann was a British-born knitter known for revolutionizing the modern practice of knitting through her books and instructional series on American public television. . Elizabeth Zimmermann is worked in one piece, starting at the brim, which is worked in the round. Both the main body and shirred panel are worked flat and then rejoined via seaming.

Hello, I'm Anne Kuo Lukito. I'm a hand-knitting designer and my works have been published in many books and top magazines, such as Knitty, Interweave Knits, Knitscene and Twist Collective,. I've also contributed designs to and worked with several yarn companies. Recently, I designed the Fall Collection for Manos del Uruguay yarns. While knitting is my dominant craft now, I've always been a crafter and sewer. I used to make my own clothes in high school and made jewelry. Two years ago, I got a bit into silversmithing as well. Aside from freelance design work, I am also have a couple of publishing projects coming down the pike. I also have a small boutique business, Crafty Diversions (, which distributes other designers' patterns and products to yarn shops and retailers. web: ravelry: annekuolukito facebook: annekuolukito twitter: annekuolukito instagram: craftydiversions
