Laura Birek the Knitter

I first picked up knitting needles during my sophomore year at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. I was looking for a non-academic hobby to help me relax, and now, 24 years later, knitting has turned into a passion. I absolutely love knitting, and always have a project on my needles.

I'm the author of Picture Perfect Knits, a book all about the intarsia technique, and I blog about knitting at Nocturnal Knits. I've written for Knitscene Magazine and other Interweave publications, and I have multiple patterns available on Ravelry, including my hugely popular Giganto-Blanket.
