Exposed zippers can double as vents in a wool-alpaca knit that’s fit for the medal stand—or any special winter moment.

Sally Melville has published six knitting books (including The Knit Stitch — a best-selling learn-to-knit book which has sold 300,000 copies and been translated into French and Russian—and her most recent Knitting Pattern Essentials). To support this work, she travels extensively to teach and promote knitting—speaking to wonderful folk who can appreciate the perfect buttonhole, who love the textures and colors and techniques of knitting, who want to be more intuitive about their craft, and who know that life is about learning.
But her other love—shared by 5 generations of her family—is skiing! Her English grandmother skied, her parents met on a ski hill, her father was one of Canada’s first ski instructors, she spent every winter weekend on the family ski hill, and all her children and grandchildren have skied every year of their lives!
"I was thrilled when Laura asked me to be part of Stitch Mountain! What an exciting project—the intersection of two un-related activities (skiing and knitting) that have both been a huge part of my life. I couldn’t possibly not be involved in such a project! In addition, one of my “guilty pleasures” is the Olympics. I am self-confessed couch-potato, glued to the screen for any winter Olympics event. I’ll be cheering for Kikkan Randall... But also hoping she doesn’t go head-to-head with a Canadian!"
