Clara Parkes

Clara has dedicated her life to explaining things through words. She is the founder and publisher of Knitter’s Review and author of soon-to-be seven books, including the classic The Knitter’s Book of Yarn, her memoir The Yarn Whisperer, and her New York Times-bestselling travel book, Knitlandia.

She writes to make sense of the world around her. Just don’t make her choose between words and wool. She’ll probably pull a fire alarm just to get out of answering. Clara lives on the coast of Maine with her wife, cat, a whole lot of yarn, heaps of books, and a shelf of empty journals waiting to be filled.
