Josefina Fine Knits
My Grandmother, Josefina Davalos, taught me how to knit when I was just a little
girl. I would lie on her big, green couch, with knitting needles in hand and “tie
knots” as my husband now calls it. “Patience, mi hija, patience” she would say in
her strong Mexican accent.
Little by little, I learned patience, along with the art of color, patterns, and textures.
For me, my art captures those moments in life where we pause and watch a leaf
float across the sky on a windy day seeing browns, greens and white, or when the
water laps against the shore glistening blues, silvers, and blacks. Color, patterns
and texture are everywhere, and nature is my greatest inspiration.
“Patience, mi hija, patience” still echoes in my mind as I knit, excited to see how
each piece unfolds. It is my wish to share with you, my vision of nature, and the
love I have put into my creations. It is my sincere hope that you share in my love
and excitement for each creation as well.
It’s been an adventure, one filled with new sights, new locations, and new
Josefina Fine Knits began in 2014, at the urging of friends. We’ve enjoyed our
adventure, so far, participating in various shows, festivals and fairs. And meeting
you, at those shows has been the best part, so far!
