A Trinity University alum, Liner is a theater critic by day and an enthusiastic knitter always. She describes the play as having “downloaded” directly to her brain. Looking up knitting patterns online, she came across the story of the “sweater curse,” an old wives’ tale about not knitting for your lover (or else he’ll leave before you finish the sweater). Intrigued by the idea, Liner began to write about her own unfinished knitting and unfinished relationships, finding inspiration in such famous knitters and weavers as Odysseus’s Penelope or Madame DeFarge. Stitched into the story is Liner’s love for old movies, classic literature and plenty of yarn-based humor.
Liner will be fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival-the largest arts festival in the world-where she performed Sweater Curse in August. She has toured all over Texas, in small theaters and large.
