I'm happy to introduce you her work here on POLetsy blog!
Dagmara, how did you start knitting?
I started knitting as a child, my mother taught me. I knitted dresses for my dolls at first, later I started making sweaters for myself, my family and friends and I just couldn't stop! I decided to sell my handknitted designs when my closet turned to be too small for all knitted clothes.
I can work almost everywhere! For egzample, sitting on the stone by the mountain river :)
What inspires you?
It's hard to say. Usually I don't use "ready-to-knit" patterns. Sometimes I see something interesting in magazines or TV. But most of my patterns I design by myself - I make sketches, I calculate, knit and rip off samples. And only when I'm satisfied with a result, I finish my work.
My latest finds are shawls and I knit them all the time now. I simply love traditional Estonian lace stitches and my favorite floral pattern. My buyers also like them.
Thank you Dagmara!
