Isela Phelps has been involved in the needle arts crafts since early childhood. She learned to needle knit, crochet and loom knit at her Grandma’s lap. Her love for the fiber arts continued into her adulthood. She has authored several books in loom knitting, including the best seller, Loom Knitting Primer, and has also participated in various needle knit books. She has translated many needle knit terms to loom knitting and thus expounded the loom knitting pool of knowledge. Isela Phelps is currently the in-house designer and blogger for Authentic Knitting Board. Isela Phelps resides in Utah, with her husband and two children. When she is not tangled in yarn, you can find her running a marathon or doing crossfit.
