Karie Westermann does things with wool & words. She is a designer, teacher & general wool enthusiast. Her work combines her love of storytelling, art and woolly yarns as she is a big believer in knitting never being “just knitting”.
Karie relaxes by doing pub quizzes, biking around Glasgow on her red bike, and dabbling in dress-making. Her latest project, This Thing of Paper, a knitting book inspired by medieval manuscripts and books, was released in November 2017.
Karie will be leading two workshops at Yarningham this year. Knitting the Landscape and Knitting Hap Shawls. For more information and to book a place on Karie’s workshops, please visit our website.
