🌿 This is the time of the year when the garden begins to pull me away from knitting, at least during the sunlit hours….
That said, I have spent a good part of the winter, knitting ‘wraps’ which can double as over-sized cowls. My most recent wrap is shown on the home page 👉🏼 ‘The Truth’. I particularly like this ‘wrap’ form, first because it lends itself to knitting in-the-round & ticker knitting. Second, it’s a neater way to keep the shoulders and neck warm, I.e. no hanging ends. Rather sculptural.
The pattern for this will be put up on ravelry.com soon. Finally, there’s one more wrap to finish up the season, ‘The Little Red Hen’. Designing & knitting are often much easier to accomplish than wrangling my very, busy daughter to model for me : )
The rhubarb is well on its way and the willow field that I planted anew this year is budding. 🌱
I learned to knit from my Latvian 🇦🇹 grandmother who emigrated from Riga to the USA in 1916 ( photo on left). My work can be found in numerous knitting magazines, as well as in seven books including best sellers, Hip Knit Hats (2005), Hattitudes (2009), Short Story (2012), Happy Feet (2014), and Cowlgirls 1 & 2 (2010, 2016).
At the moment, I am using stranded knitting to render letters, words and language as design elements under the logo ‘TICKER KNITS’. However, when time permits, I continue to work on private commissions and for other publications as well.
