    Author Information
    KAY GARDINER and ANN SHAYNE met on an online knitting message board years ago, and their correspondence has grown into a community of more than 150,000 knitters who regularly log on to www.masondixonknitting.com. KAY GARDINER learned to knit as a child, but put aside her needles for twenty years to obtain a law degree from Columbia, become an Assistant United States Attorney in Manhattan, and start a family. Lucky for knitters everywhere, she returned to knitting with a vengeance. After a stint in the New York publishing world, ANN SHAYNE returned to her hometown of Nashville to edit "BookPage." She has since chosen to devote her time to her family, to writing--and to knitting.
    Review quote
    "The dynamic duo of the knitting blogosphere return for their second book of best-knitting pal chitchat and practically perfect designs."--"Knit Simple""My favorite knitting books are the ones that make you feel like you're sinking into a comfy chair and having tea and a chat with a knitting crony. You come away from the experience energized, excited to knit and bursting with new enthusiasm and ideas. Kay Gardiner and Ann Shayne's latest, "Mason-Dixon Knitting Outside the Lines", available Sept. 16, fits the bill...Beyond the patterns, the tips and the ruminations make this book a keeper. Honestly, how can you fail to love a book in which one of the authors describes a fisherman's gansey as 'the Gore-Tex of its day'? And describes getting sucked into the wonderful world of sock knitting thusly: 'Life had turned into an endless infomercial where the product was socks, and I couldn't change the channel'?" --"The Portland Oregonian"/Oregonlive.com""Mason Dixon Knitting: Outside the Lines" is a great addition to any knitter's library. Wearable patterns, excellent instructions, readable stories, wonderful tips and techniques, and a big shot of humor equal a fantastic knitting book."--Blogcritics.orgPraise for "Mason-Dixon Knitting: The Curious Knitters' Guide""Imagine the stories and good company of the best knitting circle. Sandwich all that between hardcovers with 30 projects that don't look like something Granny's cat dragged in. Add clear instructions, and you've got "Mason-Dixon Knitting"."--"Parade""Like their blog, ["Mason-Dixon Knitting"] is filled with patterns, advice, personal stories and loopy humor ..." --"Family Circle"""Mason-Dixon Knitting" is a rare find indeed. Ann and Kay's infectious camaraderie, joie de vivre and irreverent humor translate well to the printed page, where they encourage readers to connect life and knitting." --"Nashville Scene"
