More than a decade ago, Clara Parkes left San Francisco's high-tech hubbub to build a quieter, more creative life on the coast of Maine. Today, her best-selling books include The Knitter's Book of Yarn, The Knitter's Book of Wool and The Knitter's Book of Socks. Clara has been named a member of Vogue Knitting's "New Wave." She is the publisher of KnittersReview.com and is a frequent contributor to Twist Collective. She has appeared regularly as the "yarn expert" on Knitting Daily TV. Clara loves to help knitters improve their understanding of the materials they use every day.
