meri Has been an avid crafter since childhood, but stayed away from knitting, strangely following her mother's advice. Several years ago she decided that she was old enough to knit. In 2014, she left her corporate job for good, moved to Kyoto and became a full-time knitter.  She now lives in Kyoto with a husband and a baby son. For amirisu, she is the editor, creative director, merchandiser and business developer.

子供の頃から様々なクラフトに手を出してきたが、編み物は「大人になるまで我慢しなさい」と母親に言われ、なぜか忠実に守って成人する。数年前、そろそろ大人になっただろうと編み物をはじめ、案の定すっかりハマる。 2014年、サラリーマン生活から足を洗い、京都に転居。現在は夫と息子とともに暮らす。
