For Andi Smith, the joy of knitting has always been in the process as much as is in the result. Andi learned to knit in Yorkshire, England, in the early '70s, when yarn choices were all acrylic and knitting the obligatory navy blue school sweater was the pre-eminent project. Nevertheless, the process of creating made her fall in love. Now, she's an author, designer, teacher and tech editor who's smiling as long as she's stitching. Andi teaches both crochet and knitting across the United States at yarn shops and national events such as Stitches. After crocheting and knitting for more than forty years, she's still as eager as ever to learn something new.
