Last November, Jillian Moreno made her debut on MDK, with a piece called “Better Know a Sheep: Breeds and Yarns,” and we took off with her on a wild (actually mostly domestic) ride. Jillian’s knowledge—of breeds, fibers, and their characteristics, and how yarn is made—is unmatched, and she has one of the zingiest writing styles you are going to find, on any subject.
It’s one thing for a knitter to fling around fiber-y words, and another to apply this learning to improve the knitting experience. Jillian knows all the woes of knitting projects gone wrong, and how knowledge of yarn might help us steer clear of trouble.
Plus: she’s just fun to read. Time spent with Jillian is good times. If it also helps your sweater, that’s great too.
