Maxim Cyr (or Max) almost has a dual personality: children’s book author and illustrator during the day, and knitter in the evening. He has been knitting for more than 5 years, but it was only in December 2018 that he launched his first pattern, the “For Fox Sake” sweater. What he loves most is inserting his illustrations in knitwear patterns for a traditional look with a modern touch.

Vincent Deslandes, or “Delz” as my friends liked to call him in high school, is the creator behind Designs by Delz. A self-taught knitter, he never feared challenges, embracing new techniques to take on one knitting adventure after the other. His background as a professional translator editor and his love for mathematics and problem-solving allow him to produce complete and precisely written patterns that he hopes will appeal to knitters of all age, gender, size and skill levels.

Vincent and Max also enjoy cooking, baking, video games and running. They live in Montreal, Canada, with their crazy, but SO adorable miniature pinscher Lola.
