Bayareaknitter Podcast Episode 14: An Interview with Kara Gott Warner

The New Year is upon us and I want to thank each and every one of you who have stood beside me through my humble podcast beginnings! I'm really looking forward to this new year with high hopes and expectations!
That said, I'm so happy to be opening the 1st chapter of my podcast this year with my friend Kara Gott Warner! I had the pleasure of meeting up with her and squeezing in this little interview while at TNNA earlier this month. 

Show Notes:
Kara Gott Warner, Creative Knitting Magazine Executive Editor, and host of Power Purls Podcast, began her career designing knitting patterns in 2002. Her designs have been published in several magazines, including: Creative Knitting, Vogue Knitting, Family Circle Easy Knitting and Interweave Knits. Kara has a background as a technical illustrator, working with craft book publishers such as Random House, Lark Books, Sterling Publishing and F+W. Kara first joined Annie’s Publishing in 2008 as a knitting book editor, and then in 2010 signed on as Executive Editor of Creative Knitting Magazine and Annie’s knitting publications. Through her Power Purls Podcast, Kara’s mission is to dig deep and ask those burning questions about what turned her guests on to “two sticks and fiber,” in the first place, and what keeps their needles moving!

Take a look now to see some of the latest runway trends in knit and crochet wear for the spring and summer season, sponsored by the Yarn Group.
