Many MANY THANKS to Ennea Collective’s contributors. We cannot do this without you!
Emily knits, spins, crochets and works her way through her fiber stash. Socks and lace/shawls are her current favorite types of projects. Her fiber stash is steadily growing (it is hard to resist) and she loves seeing all the creative color combinations, especially bright bold colors. She started spinning in fall of 2009 and loves it! Her wheels are a Majacraft Rose and a HansenCrafts minispinner. Please visit her on Ravelry where she can be found posting projects, comments and her stash as “klippity”.
Cyndy Donohue (aka riverrim spinner) lives with her husband in a tiny log cabin that sits along the banks of a beautiful river in the Pocono Mountain Region of Northeast Pennsylvania. She writes the riverrim blog where you can read her random thoughts about spinning, antique spinning wheels, weaving, knitting, gardening, flax, chickens, angora rabbits, alpaca and whatever wildlife wanders by…and of course, her works in progress.

Katherine Matthews has been knitting since childhood, and first started noodling out her own patterns in the 1990s. Around that same time she completed a Master of Library Science degree and had some patterns in books by Knitter’s Magazine. Since then, she has lived in France, started blogging, moved back to Canada, continued blogging, started podcasting and has also gotten much better at noodling out knitting patterns which she self-publishes under the Purl Diving label.

Terri knits like crazy, cans like a mad woman and only swears when absolutely necessary.
Anne Podlesak’s first design was a red bandana-printed cotton “boob keeper” with 3 large buttons at age 5. While this did not set the fashion world on notice, it did begin a lifelong interest in textiles, fiber and garments. She has a degree in costume design, several years working in various theatre venues along the east coast, and has been self-publishing designs since 2007. She enjoys a wide variety of eclectic interests and techniques, but is always fascinated by whatever sparks a new design at any given moment.
Lori Law learned to knit before she could read. Since then she’s spent a most of her time pursuing creative projects in the traditional arts (which led to a degree in Fine Arts) and through various fibre adventures which include knitting, designing, dyeing, spinning and weaving. Her online background includes web design as well as writing for various publications over the years and being the one-time editor of a large-scale online information site.
