Many years ago, Edie Eckman co-owned a yarn shop. No one told her that yarn shop owners don't actually get time to crochet or knit, so after a few years she closed the shop and turned to designing. Now she has her fingers in many aspects of the fiber arts, as teacher, writer, designer, editor, and technical editor. She considers herself fully bi-textural, and likes to serve as a Knit-Crochet Diplomat, easing the schism that can exist between the two disciplines. Edie travels extensively to teach both knitting and crochet. Her articles and designs have appeared in many yarn company publications and magazines, including Interweave Crochet, Knitters and Knit 'N Style. Edie is the author of Connect the Shapes Crochet Motifs, Socks to Knit for Those You Love, Fresh Vests to Knit, Around the Corner Crochet Borders, How to Knit Socks: Three Methods Made Easy, The Crochet Answer Book, and Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs.
