Cookie Roscoe has been knitting since mittens came into fashion. Fascinated by knitted food she perfected the process to knit a garlic bulb for the 3rd annual Garlic Festival, but required the assistance of superstar knitter Beryl Tsang to write the pattern for this year’s fest.
Jacob Goldfarb picked up crocheting in the winter of 2016 and since that time has barely put down his hooks. He likes to make winter clothing, but focuses mostly on amigurumi and blanket designs.
