🎄 It's hard to believe that ho-ho-ho time is quickly upon us. I usually give myself the week after Thanksgiving to chill-out & to recover from the pies & turkey before I jump into holiday prep. So, I eagerly plunged back into knitting and continued work on the fourth TickerKnits booklet which is all about ❤️. There's so much to say (#kntiwhatyoumean) about the topic but I'll leave it at that for the moment.

AMEN: so-be-it is out! The reaction to it has been at once interesting and amusing. My thoughts are all about 'memory' at the moment, i.e. what I remembered learning and picked up as a kid - words, sayings, poems, etc. that have remained in my head....
If you have a chance, sit down and take a moment to list all the things you have memorized over time? What's been imprinted in your mind ? Probably more than you'd think at first. 🙏🏼
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, 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 my other love, my garden resides. 🌿 My daughters, Emma & Lydia, are both muses & models. I know I have made something particularly special when they both vie for it at once!
