About the Author
Birgit Freyer was born in 1962 and thus still belongs to the generation where girls got their "proper" handicraft lessons. She later studied design and worked as a freelance web designer and lecturer active in adult education. After years of letting her knitting skills lag, she started knitting again 20 years ago. She always worked out her own designs, and when asked about them by friends and others, she began to write out the instructions. For 15 years now, she has made her patterns available at www.die-wolllust.de.
