GARDENING: When not knitting, find me in the garden 🌿 zone 5 : NW CT
🎄 As the yearend rapidly approaches, I am rushing to get things out-the-door and done….not exactly easy when Christmas decorations beckon to be hung and planning a New Year’s Eve rummy-playing dinner party is underway. All fun, but gosh, when to breathe!?
The 5th TickerKnits booklet has been a tad delayed….I use CreateSpace@ Amazon to publish and that platform has now migrated to KDP (Kindle) - they will still crank out paper copies but the publishing procedures are different. I know, a bit in the weeds….soon, soon.
In the meantime, I keep designing and knitting and have more designs ready to launch than one might expect - so I think I’ll shoot a few of those as ‘singles’ out-of-the-cannon.
I hope you all have a busy, fun and wonderful holiday season. Enjoy. Enjoy. As I say to myself - just breathe!
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 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!
