 Joji Locatelli

Joji enjoys living her life in sunny Buenos Aires, while dreaming of visiting the rest of the world armed with knitting needles and yarn. She also thinks life is much sweeter when served with coffee and chocolate!

Veera Välimäki
Veera Välimäki lives and designs in southern Finland. She loves simple yet modern knits that are easy to wear year after year. Veera is a master of casting on for new sweaters, and she adores garter stitch and all kinds of short rows. Her first book, Lankaleikki, was published in 2013 in Finland and the second, Huivileikki, came out in the fall of 2014, but the majority of Veera’s work is self-published. Her work has also been featured in magazines and books in Finland, Europe, and in the United States.
Hunter Hammersen

Hunter Hammersen was supposed to stay in school for a shockingly long time, get a respectable-sounding job, and quietly become a proper grownup.  Instead she got distracted by colorful string, started writing knitting books, and fled to the rocky coast of Maine where she spends a frankly alarming amount of time in her back yard taking pictures of yarn.  But don't tell anyone...she's still slightly worried someone will find out she escaped and try to drag her back to that other life.
