Knockout Knits Release Party with Laura Nelkin (on Sept 12)

Laura NelkinJoin local knitwear designer and author Laura Nelkin for the release of her first book, Knockout Knits on Friday September 12th, from 6 – 8 pm. Laura will be bringing all the designs from the book for you to fondle, sharing anecdotes, and signing first edition copies.

Laura has designed 23 fun-to-knit projects introducing you to advanced techniques with enthusiasm. In her first book, she shares 3 favorite types of knitting using wrapped stitches, lacework, and beads. Each chapter begins with a quick knitted cuff to lay the foundations, then gradually ramps up to more complicated designs.

The result is an all-new collection of wearable, feminine knits with a slightly rustic aesthetic. Give them as gifts, stockpile for a chilly day, or dress up a casual outfit–these are knockout projects to enjoy knitting again and again. To get you started on the wonderful projects in the book, take 15% off when you purchase the yarn for up to three projects with your book purchase.

Light refreshments will be served.Knockout-Knits_web
