October 2018 - LAURA NELKIN

October 01, 2018

Laura Nelkin lives in the Fingerlakes region of 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 years ago and hasn’t looked back (though she does make most of her clothes). Laura is a consummate maker, her hands are always busy!

Currently she is obsessed with her side-to-side Novus construction and finding new ways to apply that architecture to her sweater designs. She is also deeply in love with lace, beads and colour and incorporates them into her design work whenever possible!

This month we are displaying these three great patterns of Laura's, the Lace Mash Up, Reversible Undulating Waves Cowl, and the Novel-T. Come by the shop to touch, feel, and try them on!
