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

june 2018

πŸ’₯ 'just uploaded the SNOW booklet pics in the BOOKS section - have a look-see! 

🌱 I'm in heaven.....my garden is bursting out all over. What nature can do is truly astonishing. Needless to say, at this time of year I am torn between the needles and the spade. One way to deal with that is to knit about gardening and all-that-is-green and that's just what I am doing. 

πŸ’š Green is an interesting color...It comes in so many different shades ranging from yellow-greens to blue-greens. So the possibilities of 'the palette' are exciting. That is, if the yarn possibilities are also there - and they are (after a bit of searching)! That said, GREEN isn't always easy to wear, yet I really believe that within its wide-range of hues there's something for everyone. So the pursuit of green is in full throttle on Gunn Hill Road.

 🌱to come!!

about me

I learned to knit from my Latvian πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ή  grandmother who emigrated from Riga to the USA in 1916 ( πŸ‘‰πŸΌ 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 β€˜TICKER KNITS’. πŸ˜Ί 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!
