    Knitting: LATVIAN MITTENS AND TRADITIONAL PATTERNS. 5, likes 6 talking about this. This page is dedicated to traditions of knitting Latvian mittens, sharing stories and knowledge behind ers: K.   Latvia had lots of crafts - beautiful knitting, intricate weaving, and some spectacular embroidery. There were a lot of vendors set up around town who had very pretty hand made things. However most were modern designs and I was looking for traditional Latvian work.

    Kits for many of the mittens in the book are available in the author’s Etsy shop HobbywoolRiga. The book is also available from her shop and in digital form from Interweave Press.. Ieva Ozolina left her role as Chief Financial Officer at a large company in order to pursue her dream of opening a wool and knitting shop, Hobbywool. You searched for: latvian crafts!

    Cricket Looms come with an 8-dent reed (good for worsted weight yarns), but you can expand its capabilities with a whole library of reeds! Coordinate your yarn weight with the reed size or try experimenting with thin yarns in big reeds for loosely woven fabric, or thick yarns in smaller reeds for denser fabric. Choose from 5, 10 and dent reeds for the inch Cricket Loom! I had a Latvian weaving student in a recent class. She lived in Latvia until she was four and then left. She is in her seventies and has been spending half her year there and half of it in the US. There is a community of weavers and a large weaving studio that she works at when she is there.
