About the author (2008)

Hannah Fettig knits, sews and designs knitwear. She works for Knitwit Yarn Shop in Portland, Maine where she holds open workshops for advanced knitters. Hannah also designs knitwear for The Fibre Company and one of her designs will be featured in an upcoming knitting book due this fall. Hannah enjoys working with interesting blends, and her knit pieces reflect a boutique sensibility. Before working at the yarn shop, Hannah owned and operated a photo studio for six years, where the bulk of her work was shooting weddings. Knitting gave her relief from the stress of weddings, and at the end of her 2005 season, she decided to "retire" from photography to focus on knitting.
