About Mary Annarella
Lyrical Knits is the creative endeavor of designer Mary Annarella. Mary started knitting as a college student when she really wanted a round-yoked, Icelandic pullover but couldn’t afford one. She bought some yarn from a tiny shelf of craft supplies at a local Woolworth store (remember those?) and practiced casting on using chopsticks since she’d forgotten to purchase needles.
Mary’s knitting life got a lot of upgrades since those knitting-with-chopsticks days: beautiful hand-dyed yarns are readily available, interchangeable needles rocked her world, and she’s been publishing her own outstanding knitting patterns since 2010. She’s a sweater girl who is passionate about helping knitters get a great fit and loves designing accessories that play with geometry and fun, easy-to-knit construction. She takes particular delight in seeing knitters learn from her work to create something that makes them happy.
