I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, take photos, draw, and do other crafts as well. I adore alpaca wool and other natural materials (cotton, feathers, gourds, wood, and even coconut shells!) and try to do some crafting every day.
A couple of years ago, I began designing knit and crochet items (I confess that I am somewhat addicted to hats...love, love, love hats and have made many for gifts, to donate, and once in while for myself). Small items that work up quickly and travel easily, like hats, wrist warmers, and scarves, seem to be on many people's lists, although I also love making shawls and larger fashion items, as well as toys and dolls. Really, I suppose I haven't come across anything I won't at least try, and I hope you are adventurous in your work, too!
When Little V was begun, I had my new grandson in mind. I wanted something I could work up rather quickly, since babies don't stay the same size for long, but something that I could also repeat in a larger size simply by using bigger yarn and needles. Experimenting with different yarns and needles yielded the results I wanted, and now you can recreate this sweet little sweater for a baby in your life. Soft yarn makes it super snuggly!
