I'm a mother, former teacher and a knitwear fanatic. I learned my first stitches from my mom when I was a teenager, but I gave up knitting quickly afterwards. Having my first baby brought back my passion with great impact and this time I also started designing knitwear for children and sometimes for adults. I live with my husband and two kids in Poland. My patterns can also be found on Ravelry on the Lete's Knits designer page or on my website
