About your host

A few years ago, I quit my job as a journalist to focus on my knitting business, Cara Corey Designs. I make chunky knit and crochet accessories, from hats and cowls to blankets and rugs. But my new passion is teaching others these skills. I teach at numerous venues in San Francisco, the East Bay and Marin County.

Where you'll be

My house and studio is located in the East Bay, about 15 miles from San Francisco. I live in the Richmond Annex, which borders El Cerrito and is about 10 minutes north of Berkeley. There are a lot of great shops and restaurants on Solano Ave, just a few minutes away. While you're in Richmond, you can check out the marina and Rosie the Riveter museum.
