Ann Budd, managing editor of Interweave Knits, learned to knit in 1968 in Switzerland, when all girls in the public school system were taught needlearts. After returning to the States, she continued to knit as a hobby while working toward a master's degree in geology. In 1989, Ann left geology to pursue her love of fibers and to begin working for Interweave Press-first for Handwoven magazine, then in the book department, and finally for Interweave Knits magazine, which has featured many of her projects and articles. In 2000, Ann was awarded the Master Knitter certificate from The Knitting Guild of America. Ann lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband and three sons, who accept-but do not share!-her passion for knitting.
