Mary Ann Stephens showed up in 1959, starting knitting in 1964 and ever since then, she has found it darn near impossible to settle on just one color. She used to be a Wall St. geek, but now she’s the happy corporate refugee who runs Kidsknits.com. She lives on Long Island, in Kings Park, NY with her husband, 3 sons and 1 golden retriever. Years ago, the boys were adorable little cherubs bedecked in Mom’s knitting, hence the “Kidsknits” name. Now, the boys are more often bedecked in mud and sweat, so she knits mostly adult things, for us knitters, yet the Kidsknits name has stuck. You can visit Kidsknits.com to see more of her designs, to peruse most everything available from Dale of Norway knitting, and to consider more delights she’s chosen from other beloved sources for delicious stranded knitting goodness. You’ll also find several of Mary Ann’s designs published in Twist Collective, and keep your eye out for her work in the upcoming Fall 2011 Vogue Knitting.
