Ravelry´st leiab väga põnevaid lugusid kohalike "kudumisgurude" kohta. Nt tänane stoori:
Jete Užāne (1924–2007) is a famous Latvian knitter who has knitted almost
three thousand pairs of mittens. Her life wasn’t easy due to health
problems. She fell ill at about 5 and had to spend almost all her life
in a wheelchair – since she was 12 years old… Her mother then gave her
needles and yarn, and since then knitting was the way how to live and
express herself. She knitted lots of ‘thematic’ mittens (nature around
her, literature, four seasons, art and music, etc.).
About the white
mittens – once Jete was asked what ‘beautiful’ meant for her.
“Beautiful is white’, was the answer. ‘White’ is a very special notion
in the Latvian folk songs, and Jete also knitted thematic mittens
dedicated to dainas (our folk songs).
Teda kutsuti Cimdu Jettina nagu ma siit lugesin. Sellest lingist näeb ka fotosid tema omanäolistest kinnastest. Imelised ja isikupärased!
Üks video temast, kus näidatakse ka tema kindaid, need valged on nii ilusad.
