Laura is a technical editor, knitter, spinner, pattern designer, and podcaster.
She learned to knit at age 7 under the tutelage of her Grandma Ruthie, but became a Knitter with a capital K in her early 20’s working in a yarn shop in Los Angeles. These days she knits samples for several yarn dyers, tech edits patterns for a growing group of independent designers, spins handspun yarn for her Etsy shop, releases new knitting patterns a few times a year, and spends her “day job” helping businesses in the industry create social media strategies and content. Oh, and she starts to despair if she doesn’t get in at least a few rows of knitting or a few minutes at the spinning wheel each day.
She added tea to her blogging adventures (and her podcast) when she got tired of the same 6 Bigelow teas in the break room at at a previous job. Today her loose leaf tea coffers overflow.
Laura earned a B.S.B.A. in Business Administration from Washington University in St. Louis and an M.B.A. from the University of Southern California.
