GARDENING: When not knitting, find me in the garden ๐ŸŒฟ zone 5 : NW CT

may 2018

๐ŸŒธ It's truly, truly Spring, most importantly MAY!! Which is when my thoughts switch from knitting to gardening. One has to get the flower beds done in MAY or else ๐Ÿ’ฅ you get no garden or at least you don't get the one you envision!

That said, we're just about to launch, ironically if I may say, the Ticker-knits SNOW booklet! Yup. My 10-day trip to Japan put it on 'ice' ๐Ÿ˜† but the thaw is almost complete. Do watch the 'Ticker-knits' Instagram for an announcement (next week?).

In the mean time, I am actually designing & knitting a non-Ticker top. I really LOVE ๐Ÿ˜ Ticker-knitting, but a few fab ideas came to me in The-Land-of-the-Rising-Sun and I think when the spigot is primed you just go with the flow.  If anything, Japan is visually inspirational. Actually, the first snow storm of the year bumped my usual schedule of work and out came the SNOW collection as well. 

Soooo...I'm not dead, haven't retired! - just extremely distracted & busy. Stay tuned for SNOW.

about me

I learned to knit from my Latvian ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น  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, I am using stranded knitting to render letters, words and language as design elements under the logo โ€˜TICKER KNITSโ€™. ๐Ÿ˜บ 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. ๐ŸŒฟ My daughters,  Emma & Lydia, are both muses &  models. I know I have made something particularly special when they both vie for it at once!
