Celebrate your life with the ethereal designs of Ilga Leja.

Meet Ilga Leja: “Knitting has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. When I was about 5 years old, I learned to knit from a neighbor friend. My mother, seeing me struggle with thick yarns and needles far too thin and the English style of knitting, took pity on me, gave me better tools, and showed me the Continental style. I have worked with both styles of knitting ever since and use them interchangeably.

I have had a busy life, balancing career and family. Yet knitting has been the continuing thread through every phase. It has given me solace during troubled times, pleasure in quiet times and joy in happy times. It inspires and challenges me with new ideas for creativity at every turn.

One of my other passions has been photography. I have been taking pictures since I was a child with a Brownie camera. I see photo subjects everywhere I go and these often translate into knitting designs later. By beginning to publish my designs, I have been able to bring these two loves together.

As you can see from my designs, I love to work with pattern and color. My designs reflect my current interests, whether it is handpainted yarns, working with lace, or experimenting with textures. Yet always I am looking to create timeless designs, ones that will give pleasure for many years to come.”

Ilga’s pattern Collections will take you from a day spent seaside or strolling through a magical forest to opening night at the Opera.  You’ll find a project for the rhythm of your daily life in all seasons.
