More About the Author
Sharon Turner designs knitwear, and when her daughters were babies, published Monkeysuits, a line of knitting patterns for babies and children. She is the author of Teach Yourself Visually Knitting, Monkeysuits: Sweaters and More to Knit for Kids, Teach Yourself Visually Knitting Design, Knitting Visual Quick Tips, Find Your Style and Knit It Too, Teach Yourself Visually Knitting 2nd Edition, and Knitting Stitches VISUAL Encyclopedia. In between books, Sharon also had the good fortune to work as technical editor on a few fun books written by aspiring/inspiring designers. While working on her last two books, Sharon went to nursing school and in 2011, became a registered nurse. She recently added CHPN [Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse] to her title, and works nights in a small inpatient hospice unit in a large New York City hospital. She is learning a lot from her supportive and talented colleagues, as well as from her patients and their families. Sharon lives in Brooklyn, New York, and sometimes in Hague, New York with her wonderful husband and three rapidly growing daughters [two of whom are taller than she and are therefore no longer monkeys].
