SereKNITy + What to Knit When You're Expecting

Growing up, Nikki Van De Car only ever wanted to read books. She left her home in Volcano, Hawaii to study English Literature at Carleton College in Minnesota, figuring it didn’t matter if it was cold since all she wanted to was sit under a blanket and read, anyway. After graduating, she moved to New York City to become a literary agent, and found that the most rewarding aspect of her work was helping authors craft their stories, whether in fiction, memoir or nonfiction—because every book really does tell a story.

Nikki left agenting in 2009 to raise her daughter, and to pursue her secondary love of knitting. She is the author of What To Knit When You’re Expecting and What To Knit: The Toddler Years, along with SereKNITy, published in April 2017 and the upcoming Feng Crochet: Calming Projects for a Harmonious Home in the fall of 2017. Nikki found that the act of knitting brought her a sense of peace and internal understanding that she had been missing, and it inspired her to pursue yoga, meditation, shinrin-yoku, and to develop her spiritual practice.

Nikki joined kn literary to get back to working with words, and the people who write them. She loves fostering an idea. Helping writers envision precisely what they want to say, and working with them on sharing their story, is work that feels like play.  After all, what could be better than to help grow a book into something that can change the world?
