Knitting and Crochet in your Life
Plenty of knitting and crochet blogs out there. Why should you read mine? Well, every knitter and crocheter has individual traits and ways of doing things. Knitting or crochet by an individual is like handwriting – the result is never the same. There is always something new to discover. You will find out how you can improve your knitting or crochet skills.
You will find knitting and crochet tips and tricks the way I am doing. I try to create wearable garments that fit my everyday life. Therefore, I love stockinette in my garments and other simple patterns. But simple look doesn’t mean it is easy to make – I am paying attention to details. I am looking for a perfect look and fit.
Begin your knitting journey with basic cast on methods!
I am crazy about the details.
I love when the wrong side of the garment looks as good as the right side.
Seamless knitting technique is popular nowadays, but I love to knit garments with seams, fitted sleeves, attaching zippers. I will share more tutorials about these topics. Don’t worry, am knitting seamless designs – raglan sweaters, round yokes. You find tutorials in different techniques.
Where do I get inspiration?
I am reading and watching a lot of knitting blogs to get more knowledge. Reading books. Watching YouTube. I know quite a lot of languages, so I follow Latvian, Russian, English, Turkish and some German knitting blogs. That gives me general understanding what is popular in the knitting and crochet world.
I get inspiration from photos and fashion magazines. We all do that, right? 🙂
But what gives me more drive is when I finish a piece of garment or accessory. I am looking forward to start a new one.
I rarely knit or crochet from ready patterns. From idea to finish might take quite a lot of time because of all the calculations and unraveling. But result is better and better each time.
I have plenty of unsuccessful projects in my cupboard. But I am proud of them. They remind me how I have evolved.
I love to crochet – that’s a fact! Most of all, I enjoy crochet accessories – bags and purses. Lately, I am into garments too – I am preparing articles about crochet garments.
In my blog I create everything with love, all the photos, patterns, crochet diagrams are original unless stated otherwise.
