About the Author

Kerry Kimber always wanted to teach her children to knit, so she thought hard about how to do it in a way that would encourage and enthuse them from the start. She realised the potential to teach these skills more widely, and she began the Kids Knit program, which after proving to be a rip-roaring success became Knitting for All, an educational organisation which teaches knitting to children, young people and adults. She is based in Edinburgh.
