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…
