Laura Nelkin lives in upstate New York, where
the sunny season is short, leaving plenty of time to be indoors knitting. Though
she has a degree in apparel design, she took to knitting many years ago and
hasn't looked back since. Laura is currently enamored with lace, and with
incorporating beads into knitted jewelry, so most of her designs lean in this
direction. She travels often to teach these techniques and more at workshops
around the country and on-lne with Craftsy.com. Her designs have been featured
in a number of publications, including Interweave, Knitty.com, Schaefer Yarn Co.
and Creative Knitting. Laura is currently working on a book with Potter Craft
that is due out in Fall of 2014!
