After retirement from a career in the Computer Industry, boredom set in! I began knitting, a skill I had learned as a child. I was enthralled by the changes in the yarns and color ways, and they inspired me to create my own designs. When I was out in one of my creations, people would ask to purchase one--I was amazed to discover that I had creative talent when I had only exercised the mechanical side of my brain during my career!
Ricki’s Knits are all original creations, hand knitted by me. My products include jackets, shawls, ponchos, scarves, capes and capelets. Each unique garment is a combination of 25 yarns of different textures and colors that blend together to create a unique piece of fiber art. My color sense and attention to detail allow me to produce designs that are both fashionable and artistic. Currently, I am in several Florida boutiques in Naples, Sanibel Island, and Coral Gables, and display my work at the Howard Alan events in South Florida. I'm not bored anymore!
As my husband says, "Every woman looks better when they wear one of my wife's garments"! Obviously he is extremely prejudiced, but I hope you will enjoy wearing my designs as much as I enjoy creating them for you.
