Christy Nelson


Christy Nelson

Christy Nelson has been addicted to yarn for most of her adult life. She started with crochet about 20 years ago and has now added knitting and spinning to her repertoire. An avid traveler, many of her designs are inspired by her visits to other countries like China, Mexico, Switzerland, and Italy. Last summer she spent 5 weeks in France with her husband and two children (ages 11 and 9), but she calls Lincoln, Nebraska home.

Christy is a former blogger and social media strategist. You can still find her archives at christynelson.net and it's possible she'll get back to it, but for the past year or so she has enjoyed taking a break from working online and has enjoyed the other opportunities that have come her way.
