Good books! ...and a

Good books! ...and a delightful person... She has a new book on felted bags...great fun patterns... they're BIG bags... including a swan bag that's great fun! Her "knitting on the edge" books..(there are two or three) are encyclopedias of stitches and patterns...

Nicky is a fun lady. I went

Nicky is a fun lady. I went to one of her flower maiking classes at The Point a while back. she was a great teacher. I also went to a presentation that she did at Museum of Art where she gave a brief bio of her work. It was arranged by Vogue knitting. She brought several of the items that are in her books & they were modelled.

I think that there are 3 books now in Over the Edge series, Knitting with embellishments. Do take a look at her books they are very inspiring.

She sometimes substitute teaches at the Fashion Insitute of New York. 

Knit away, knit away

Nicky Epstein is NY based. 

Nicky Epstein is NY based.  I have heard several of her talks/demos at the Big Apple Knitters guild meetings where she is a frequent speaker.  Lovely and talented lady.  Gained a bit of wider spread popularlity with her Knitting for Barbie book a few years ago.  My favorite though is her book on hats that is out of print but quite wonderful and inspiring.  If you ever find it in a used book store grab it.  It is worth it.  I think Knitting on the Edge is one of her most recent books.
