I fell in love with knitting when I was 4 or 5 years old, watching my mom’s knitting. I loved to sit close to her and follow stitches that were running from one needle to another. It was like a miracle for me! At that time my mom showed me knit and purl stitches and I was really happy knitting scarves for my teddy bears and dolls! But then I did not knit for a long time. As a student, I was making lots of sweaters for me and my friends. But the real passion for knitting came to me when I became a mom. With the birth of my kids knitting has become a major hobby for me, a real relaxation and a special world of discovery and adventure. At the same time I had a desire to create my first own design. As for every mom, my world for me – it is my kids, and everything that I do in my life, I do first of all for them! And, of course, also knit first of all for them. :) They are my main inspiration in creating new designs. That is why, mainly, I create designs for kids.
