Laura Ricketts
Laura is a knitter, knitwear designer, teacher, and author. A history teacher by profession with a master's degree in education, she has combined that love for history, literature, and textiles in her handcraft teaching. It is the beauty and precision of Nordic stranded knitting, however, which has become Laura's passion. Her work has been featured in "PieceWork," "Knitting Traditions," "Knitsy," "Interweave Knits," "Love of Knitting," and "Love of Crochet," as well as "BÁIKI: The North American Sámi Journal." Laura has taught at Finn Fest, the American Swedish Institute, the Vesterheim Norwegian-American museum, and the Nordic Knitting conference in Seattle, as well as being its keynote speaker. She lives in north-central Indiana.
