Laura Nelkin
Laura Nelkin
Laura Nelkin lives in upstate New York, where the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time for knitting indoors. Though she has a degree in apparel design, she took to knitting years ago and hasn't looked back since. Today, she finds herself fascinated with beads and lace. Laura teaches all over the country, runs mystery knit-alongs and even has her own line of knitting kits and self-published patterns. You can find them online, as well as in her book, Knockout Knits.
