GARDENING: When not knitting, find me in the garden 🌿 zone 5 : NW CT
🦔 Punxsutawney Phil predicted a rare early spring on the 2nd February, Groundhog Day this year. That said, we’ve had very little snow in New York City and northwestern CT. I rather miss it -
but it remains great knitting weather, cool enough to let fingers fly!
I’m still working on SMITTEN ❤️ the 6th TickerKnits collection. Think 👉🏼 ‘Love-is-in-the-Air’….’He loves me, He loves me not’….’til death do us part, etc…
It’s all edited - ‘ just need a few more photos…
In recent months, I’ve also taken up willow basket making - another form of ‘interlacing’ - something I have wanted to do for ages. Moreover, I am going all in by planting my own willow field this Spring. It’s prepped and ready to go - willow cuttings will arrive at the end of March, when they’ll be planted out. Needless to say, willow weaving is also influencing my knitting design; I am intrigued by basketweave stitch patterns……to be continued…
Stay warm! 🔥
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.
I split my time between New York City and New Preston, CT (where I love to work in the garden). 🌿 My daughters, Emma & Lydia, are my muses & models; I know I’ve made something particularly special when they both vie for it at once!
