About Cecelia Campochiaro
Cecelia Campochiaro appeared on the knitting scene in 2015 with her debut book, Sequence Knitting. Textiles, photography, and the arts have been lifelong passions running in parallel with her technical life. Today she is fully dedicated to the fiber world and ‘unventing’ new ways to make amazing knit fabrics. Her latest book is Making Marls.
In high school and college, even though her main studies were in the sciences, she studied drawing, printmaking, ceramics, and photography. And and in her career she developed specialized microscopes used in computer chip manufacturing.
Knitting was a casual pastime until she had an ah-ha moment in 2010, and realized that textured fabrics could be created by the simple repetition of a sequence of stitches. This idea evolved into sequence knitting, which is a mindful approach to knitting that leads to textured reversible fabrics.
