CHATTING WITH LAURA NELKIN & 3 GIVEAWAYS!

ALOHA DEAR FRIENDS!

{{Spoiler alert! At the end of this post are 3 incredible giveaways!}}

I recently had a chance to chat with designer and teacher Laura Nelkin. I thought I was just going to share an interesting person with you, but wound up making a friend connection for myself!

We had a blast chatting about what it takes to design knitting patterns, to create a book, to juggle our dreams and reality..we covered a lot of creative territory in the hopes of bringing an inspiration and insight to you!

If you have a KNOCKOUT KNITS book you may want to grab it to have on hand as we talk about interesting behind the scenes tidbits! So have a listen and then pop back over here to see what Laura has to share with you as a gift! {Remember you can subscribe to the podcast by way of iTunes!}

  1. Thank you so much for this awesome giveaway:-) I checked out Laura’s shop and the kits are amazing! My fave was the Cambio Cap Kit–I could totally see myself wearing that hat everyday here in snowy Cleveland:-)

    My first introduction to Laura came in October with the Cruzado Cowl, October’s Dream kit. I then saw that my local yarn shop was hosting a class with Laura. I jumped at the opportunity and had the honor of attending Laura’s classes in early December. Her kits are wonderful and I’m lucky to already have a signed copy of Knock out knits. In December I made a Butin collar and Mudra cuff for Christmas presents and a Stereo Cuff in class. I gave away a Cambio cowl kit as a Christmas present and I currently have a Cambio cowl on my needles. I quickly have become a nelkinite! I would love to win a cha Ching mitts kit!

    I was listening while switching for Prolix Mitts! I have Laura’s new book and I especially enjoyed going to the pages as you were talking about them. I think I’d like to try Laura’s Stereo Cuff.
