Warner will stay on as editor but will also oversee the company’s magazines Crochet! and Crochet World as well as the television series “Knit and Crochet Now!” (I recently reviewed its latest season over at About, if you missed it.) She first joined Annie’s in 2008 as freelance knitting book editor, and joined the company full time in 2010 as executive editor of Creative Knitting magazine and knit publications.
“I’m passionate about yarn and the survival of the industry. In my new position as editorial director, I look forward to strengthening existing relationships with Annie’s yarn partners and cultivating new alliances as well. I believe this is an essential ingredient to our success,” she said in a press release announcing the promotion.

Congratulations, Kara, and best of luck in your new position!
