Meg Swansen

Meg Swansen is a renowned knitting designer,[1][2] owner of Schoolhouse Press and the daughter of Elizabeth Zimmermann.[3] Similar to her mother, she has helped to popularize knitting and is a well-respected author and knitting teacher,[4] especially at her knitting retreats.[5][6] Swansen also writes a long-running regular column in Vogue Knitting called "Meg Swansen on...", that covers everything from the Turkish cast on (Fall 2005) to lace knitting (Spring/Summer 2006) to the recherché Scandinavian two-end knitting (Winter 2006/2007).
