My name is Elena Nodel, and I am a mom to a very industrious, busy, ever curious and adventurous little girl. She is my ever present inspiration for all my creative ideas. As she grows, she becomes more and more involved in my creative work, and actually does have a say in a final look of any given project. I have a Girly Girl, thus most of my designs are very feminine. However, lately I have started working on more unisex projects.
I was born and raised in Russia, a place where knitting is a part of the lifestyle. I now live in British Columbia, Canada, one of the most beautiful countries in the world. I am a trained microbiologist/immunologist , and have spent years doing scientific research. I am married to a like scientist, and his name is Peter. I am truly blessed to have such a wonderful and supportive husband, and Maya is very lucky to have a father who constantly encourages her natural curiosity, and teaches her about the world around her - she has him wrapped very tightly around her little finger!
I love working with natural fibers such as cotton or wool, and always try to use them.One thing I don't like doing is seaming, therefore I knit in the round as much as possible. It is great for me and comfortable for kids. And as a result, I usually design my garments to be worked in the round from the top down.

My Kind of Sweater is the adult version of my "Color Me Pretty Sweater" design.
The sweater is worked from the top-down seamlessly. The construction of the top section is through a circular yoke and raglan style increases. The sleeve stitches are then removed and the body completed before returning to finish the sleeves. You have an option to make sleeves any length you desire (short- long).
The sweater is highly customizable! The pattern has instructions on how to adjust the fit to your body type at all the appropriate places. You can also adjust the ease of your sweater! the pattern tells you how.
We hope you will enjoy making YOUR kind of sweater.
