Welcome to Plektra shop! (stress on the 'e' which is pronounced as in 'pen')

I was taught how to knit (as well as cross stitch and crochet) by my grandmother when I was just a child. No fancy needles, books, patterns and name of stitches were provided in the village where she lives. It was more like 'this is how you do it' approach. I remember her teaching me how to do cable knitting using a toothpick as a cable needle. I even knit the old fashioned, grandma way!

Lace knitting is my favorite. It is challenging and time consuming but the end result is rewarding. I have learned pretty much everything about it on my own through several hours of practising and trial and error. I enjoy the creative process and turning my own ideas into my patterns that I use in my work.

Everything in my shop is handmade by me in Edinburgh, Scotland. I love beautiful, bright colors and carefully selected yarns (mostly natural fibres) to create a variety of quality products that you would love to use or gift to yourself and someone special.

I often add new items. Please feel free to browse my shop and I hope you find something you like. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me here. I reply to queries fairly quickly.
