Carolina Kidwell-Bozeman loves playing with fiber in all forms. There is nothing more satisfying to her than spreading the therapeutic, creative and joyous qualities inherent in knitting. Carolina has been knitting since the age of 9, and picked it back up in college where she benefited from the meditative process of knitting instead of focusing only finishing the project. In her own knitting she embraces playing with color and texture when choosing a pattern.
