Five Things You Didn't Know About Nicky Epstein

Renowned designer, teacher and author Nicky Epstein has an amazing innovative design, Corona, in the winter issue of Creative Knitting magazine. It's one that highlights a unique perspective on cables and circles. I had the great fortune to chat with Nicky to find out a few things we might not have known about her, but have always wanted to ask.

Nicky, share something most people don't know about you.
I studied dance and wanted to be a Radio City Rockette.

What are your "must-have" items?
Sharp scissors (at least three pairs), good knitting needles and yarn, my Lantern Moon knitting/travel bag, color cards and yarn samples, my books and chocolate (definitely chocolate).

What's in your secret stash?
Elegant knitting needles (I love to look at them), high-end cashmeres (thin to bulky weights), Buffalo Gold yarn made with real buffalo, and beaded and sequined yarns.

What is your favorite stitch?
Tough question -- I've never knit a stitch that I didn't love.

What are you knitting right now?
LOTS of things! Five new designs for Lion Brand Yarns, some for AslanTrends yarn company, and I'm finishing an innovative knitting book called Knitting Reimagined for spring 2014.
