Kuduja means “knitter” in Estonian. I learned to knit and to crochet as a schoolgirl. After a long pause I went to a yarn shop (my daughter needed yarn for her knitting lesson at school) and became interested. Compared to the time when I was a child, how many fascinating yarns have become available!
My new book on seamless knitting in Estonian and English can be purchased here or here.
I regularly publish in the Estonian crafts magazine Käsitöö (Handycraft). In 2014 I took part in Tallinn Fashion Week. You can see the knits here.
I approach knitting as an engineer/architect. In most cases, the depature point for me is a construction. Then I think about an appropriate yarn. A stitch pattern comes later (unless I have a particular stitch pattern in mind). I opt for seamless knitting. I like minimalism but also like lace patterns. The secret is not to overdo it.
