“Handcrafting has always been my passion, especially knitting and crocheting. Soft to touch colorful high-quality yarns inspire me to create wonderful unique creations.

I was born in North of Russia on the Taymyr Peninsula above the Arctic Circle, that is why my parents named me “Snejana”, which means “Snowy”, or “Snow White”.

I remember on the long polar nights watching my mom knit, and me helping her choose the yarn colors for the socks and mitts. I got the love for knitting from her. Once I was able to hold two needles in my hands she taught me how to knit on my own. I was very proud when I was able to knit my first row. I taught myself how to crochet later in life.

I spent my school years and early adolescence in Moldova where I kept perfecting my skills. I hand knitted my first outfit at the age on 15 – sweater and a skirt. I felt a great feeling of accomplishment.

Then I met my wonderful husband and we moved to Eugene, USA. Here as well, I could not stay away from the yarn, I could spend hours browsing between the yarn isle with tons of ideas and designs in my head. Soft colorful yarns inspire me to create.

For years I have been knitting and crocheting things for my family and friends and they were the ones who encouraged me to share my creations with the World. I did not realize how much joy it will give me to see people exited to wear my knits.

So here I am, my humble self, sharing my creations with you: www.snejanacreations.com “
