Jen and Jim’s company, Arnall-Culliford Knitwear Ltd., provides technical editing services to some of the biggest names in the hand-knitting industry. They work with independent designers, yarn companies, and publishers, to ensure that their pattern instructions are a joy to work from. They also are the creators of A Year of Techniques, which is both a book and a yearlong series of video tutorials.
Alongside editing work, Jen writes master classes for the UK magazine The Knitter, as well as moderating a number of vibrant Ravelry groups. Jen is a reluctant designer, but sometimes an idea is just too persistent to ignore. She’s led by a fascination with techniques in combination with a love of her local area and bird life.
Jim has a background in science education and still has a red pen for marking up corrections. He has written technique articles for Simply Knitting magazine, and chronicled his life as a knitting widower through a column in the same magazine.
