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. Luckily for us, she returned to knitting with a vengeance. After stints in the New York publishing world, Ann Shayne returned to her hometown of Nashville to edit BookPage.
