🍂 Fall is here! Maybe not technically but in the northwest corner of Connecticut, it's cold! Last night was in the 40's. Definitely sweater weather.
The final edits of the third ticker booklet, 'AMEN: so-be-it' are in, so hopefully it will be available soon. There are 7 patterns: a scarf, 2 cowls, a caplet (in 3 color ways), a pullover, and a pillowcase set. The projects are larger but just as easy to do using the 'ticker knits method'. More on the collection later...
At the moment, I am getting ready for a trip to the Faroe Islands in mid-September. The Faroes, an autonomous country in the kingdom of Denmark, are far north of the globe between Iceland and Norway, off the north-northwest coast of Scotland. The landscape is expected to be spectacular and of course, we're there to see the hand knitting as well.
🍁 Happy Fall!
I learned to knit from my Latvian 🇦🇹 grandmother who emigrated from Riga to the USA in 1916. 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, my work is focussed on 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 my other love, my garden resides. 🌿 I often use my daughters, my muses - Emma & Lydia - as models. I know I have made something particularly special when they both vie for it at once!
