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

2018 december

๐ŸŽ„ As the yearend rapidly approaches, I am rushing to get things out-the-door and doneโ€ฆ.not exactly easy when Christmas decorations beckon to be hung and planning a New Yearโ€™s Eve rummy-playing dinner party is underway. All fun, but gosh, when to breathe!?

The 5th TickerKnits booklet has been a tad delayedโ€ฆ.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 weedsโ€ฆ.soon, soon.

In the meantime, I keep designing and knitting and have more designs ready to launch than one might expect - so I think Iโ€™ll shoot a few of those as โ€˜singlesโ€™ 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!

Never-not-knitting

 ๐Ÿ‘ I bought this painting on eBay a number of years back. It hangs in the my office and I never tire looking at it

about me

I learned to knit from my Latvian ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡น  grandmother who emigrated from Riga to the USA in 1916 ( ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ 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 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!
