Similar to her mother, she has helped to popularize knitting and is a well-respected author and knitting teacher, especially at her knitting retreats. Swansen also writes a long-running regular column in Vogue Knitting called "Meg Swansen on...", that covers everything from the Turkish cast on to lace knitting to the recherché Scandinavian two-end knitting.
