About the Author
LENA MAIKON learned to knit at age five in her hometown of New Siberia, Russia. She didnt pick up a needle again for 25 years until she realized her talent for knitting could save her from a frustrating career as a math teacher. She began applying her mathematical mind to the counting of stitches and created Leninka, her own clothing label. Lenas handmade knits are sought after in the fashionable boutiques of New Yorks Soho and in her adopted city of Tel Aviv, Israel.
