When she was an investment banker, Anne Weil found herself daydreaming about craft projects. Then, in 2010, she started a blog about all things handmade. As her site, Flax & Twine, gained a following, Weil left her day job for full time crafting. Weil, who lives in Denver, also freelances for Martha Stewart's website and teaches online for Creativebug and Craftsy. Her first book is called "Knitting Without Needles: A Stylish Introduction to Finger and Arm Knitting." She spoke about it with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
