Stained Glass Arm Warmers

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.

New Designs and more…crochet and knitting

Now available on my Etsy store at www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com Many other unique scarves, hand warmers, hats and more.  Check out the newest designs too.

It has been a long hard 10 weeks since I injured my right arm especially since I haven’t been able to knit or crochet since then and still not able to.  I have to say it is almost torture for a designer not to design and create everyday, but at the same time it gives you rest (even though your kicking and screaming LOL).  The injury progressed to my left arm due to over use looking after the right arm and then angered my neck and shoulders so just when I thought I was making head way everything was a mess.  Glad to say that this week I finally feel like I am getting back to doing some things myself again and it feels great.  Part of my injuries was over use from working to hard on my creations, but you know you just have to knit and crochet as it’s so much fun.  I did try to dabble a little with more pattern writing, perhaps I will work on that again soon.

I hope in the next few months that I can once again pick up my needles and create new pieces.  Luckily I was working on new designs all year prior to my injuries and will have more new designs on my Etsy store soon.  You can also link with www.valeriebaberdesign.com for my new Etsy Website.

You can also purchase my many designs locally in Edmonton, Alberta at www.albertacraft.ab.ca or in St. Albert, Alberta at www.artgalleryofstalbert.ca

My goal when designing this piece and the Plaid Tartan scarf was to bring the tradition of this pattern forward with a deconstructed plaid tartan feel on both the hand warmers and the scarf in stripes going vertical and horizontal as this pattern does.  There will be woman’s colour ways coming soon so pop by soon.
