Lucy has been an adventurous knitter since she was 17. She is originally from the UK, where she was a navigating officer in the Merchant Navy. She now lives in Nova Scotia, where she discovered her passion for sharing the engineering marvels of knitting, in particular double-layer fabrics. She teaches internationally in person and online, has written several books, and has filmed many technical knitting DVDs. Lucy enjoys trying to dispel the myth that only sedentary, quiet people in rocking chairs knit: she loves cycling, downhill skiing, quilting, colourful home improvement, and narrow-boating on the historic UK canal system.
