A collection of elegant rose inspired designs including 3 styles of scarves and 2 lengths of hand/arm warmers. The Elegant Rose collection is a great addition to any wardrobe and can be made with beautiful neutrals as shown or add colour with the base one colour and the flowers and leaves another. See more information or to purchase on my Etsy store. Etsy store: www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com
For the Elegant Rose Collection I used beautiful yarn from Sweetgeorgia Yarns in the worsted weight yarn. Most other worsted weight yarns will work for this design. Try a hand painted effect with solid coloured roses to pop the floral accent or a beautiful neutral colour as shown for an elegant touch. The inspiration for these designs is a walk through a rose garden enjoying a beautiful warm day and to keep these memories near to warm you on the colder days of winter. The design on the base of the pieces is inspired by the stone tracery of Gothic Architecture of the past on beautiful cathedrals and buildings. These buildings were often embellished with beautiful stone tracery of leaves, flowers and vines. I love adding an architectural essence to my designs.

The new Stained Glass Arm warmers are perfect to keep your hands warm and cozy this season. Available at http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com and http://www.valeriebaberdesign.com
Stained Glass series is a collection I have been working on this year in relation to my Architectural Design Project. The Stained Glass panel beside the traditional style was also made by myself years ago. I loved making the Stained Glass then and always want to design some with yarn.
The Gothic Cathedrals of the past adorn many amazing Stained Glass windows that add colour to the stone walls. I have designed two versions so far with a beige stone coloured base and a more contemporary feel on one style and a traditional essence with an ivory base and brighter Stained Glass on this style. The beige contemporary version has rod iron that surrounds the glass window gently sewn in beside the stained glass panels in the center in a subtle manner. The ivory traditional style has a bold colour way with the rod iron place one either side of the window panel in a stronger essence to go with the more bold traditional design.
There will be more colours coming soon.
They are also available soon at the Alberta Craft Council in both Edmonton and Calgary, see their website for addresses. I have many one of a kind designs including scarves, and hand warmers at these two locations.

Introducing the Sophia Collection – Sophia Rose Collection. Inspiration for the Sophia Collection was from various Architectural influences I have been enjoying with my research into design of the past and incorporating it into the present and future designs I am working on. I called this collection Sophia as it means wisdom a beautiful part of every woman. The Sophia Collection is my “Wired to the Past” collection which brings styles and design from the past with a contemporary edge where I will add a “wired” look with yarn on each of them showing how the past is directly connected to the present and future.
Various colours available shown at the bottom of the page.
Sophia Rose Eclectic collar scarf, shown in the ivory set has 4 roses on the base of the scarf and leaves with a more eclectic feel in a spiral essence to add a unique touch. The hand warmers have one rose each and the eclectic leaves with a vintage style button to match the scarf.
Sophia Rose Elegant collar scarf, shown in the light gray, has a softer and elegant touch with the rose details and leaves more traditional in style. Two roses and leaves adorn the hand warmers adding an elegant classic touch to the design.
Sophia Rose Classic collar scarf, shown in the dark gray, has the same 4 roses, but omits the leaves to add a more modern touch to the design. A single rose on each hand warmer to match the scarf.
You can choose the one that portrays your style best. There is also a plain version, no roses or leaves, called the Sophia Classic collar scarf. Various hand warmers to match each style is also available including a plain version shown below. See more at www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com or www.valeriebaberdesign.com
