Welcome! ....As a Painter and Textile Artist....... I also make "stuff". I love the creative process... My design style spans from the charm and unpretentions of the Rustic, Folkart Primitives, the comfortable and pleasant Cottage/Traditionals, to the surprises in Found Object and the mystery of Improvisational Abstract. I am inspired by God and His creation... I design and paint, and sew and knit and carve wood, and enjoy needle handwork... My creative curiosity leads me from one to the next... I enjoy my garden, have a dog and a cat, love the outdoors, and I enjoy my family and friends! I currently live in the beautiful state of Idaho...

Knitting for a new baby...

The neighbors next door have a new baby,..well actually he was born in April, so he's not acutally brand new, but new to the proud new parents.  I told the new mom that I would love to make something for him and I found it in the KnittingWorkbook by Debbie Bliss.  The name of the pattern is Baby's Top with Seed Stitch trim.  I'm finished with the front, back and now working on the first sleeve.  All has gone well, and I seem to be progressing well.  I chose a washable yarn made by Mission Falls.  It is so hot here in Kansas, so I find refuge from the heat inside, happily knitting away. 
Keeping cool in Kansas,...Val
