I’ve been fortunate to make my passion for yarn a career for many years and I’m still learning new things. My favorite way to work through my at-home stash is making blankets. I also love to hang out in my garden whenever I can.
My first and the most important knitting/crochet teacher was my mom. Being from Latvia, it was hard to stay away from knitting. Having an architectural background helped me become a knitwear designer. Unusual shapes and intricate stitches are my passion.
A self-taught designer, I use my art and design background whenever I can, especially when it comes to combining colors - my favorite! I always have several projects on the go and love to D.I.Y. anything I can.
My Nana taught me how to knit and crochet when I was small - little did I know she was laying the groundwork for my career as a Knit and Crochet designer! After studying Fashion Design in college, I joined Patons and have been a designer here for 10 years. It is still amazing to me that I get to come to work every day and do what I love.
Admittedly, my first project was a half-finished dishcloth I made as a child when my Aunt first taught me to knit. It wasn’t until my university years that I truly learned the joy and satisfaction of knitting and crocheting. I now enjoy a career doing what helped me relax and hope these patterns do the same for you.
I began knitting and crocheting as a child when I learned to love yarn by admiring my Granny-made afghans that arrived promptly every Christmas. Since studying Interior Design in college, I have been lucky enough to combine my love of yarn and cozy spaces into a fulfilling career. I have recently joined the Patons design team and can’t wait to share more of my ideas with you!
