About Me:
I absolutely love to quilt and knit and recently began learning the fine art of watercolor. I admit that I'm still learning how to knit and quilt but I feel I improve with each project I finish. My short-term goal includes learning how to knit socks, which would probably save me a bundle since my girls tend to tear through socks very rapidly. My mid- and long-term goals include finishing my first knitted sweater, which I started in March 2008 and have yet to finish. Despite the trials and occassional "oops," I hope to have that sweater finished very soon now that I finally finished my quilt top and I have more free time.

Hey, I raised my family in Idaho and have 2 kids still there. One is a paramedic in Caldwell and the other teaches school in Marsh Valley. The paramedic's wife is expecting any minute, so we will be up through that way in August. Are you a long time resident or military? Barbara

Bren have you done any quilting lately. I'm still working on my one block wonder.

I love your paintings!! Those are so pretty and I love the colors that you chose in them. They make me want to un-earth my painting supplies again.

I'm in love with sock knitting. They're just so perfect to carry with in your purse/bag and you can pull the out almost anywhere to add a row or two. Besides, socks are perfect for those gorgeous variegated yarns that are hard to use in larger garments. I've been working through Laura Chau's book, "Teach Yourself Visually: Sock Knitting", and I love it. There have been a few typos in the patterns that I've done so far, but there are entire chapters devoted to different ways of knitting socks and I haven't seen any typos in these. Also, Laura is really good at keeping the errata posted on her blog for the patterns. (I've got the ones that I've encountered on my Ravelry Project Pages, too.) The chapters go into lots of detail and answer any question that a beginning sock knitter could think of. I knit the cuff-down socks in January as my first socks ever and didn't have any issues with them. Also, Laura is very very helpful if you do have any questions.

Happy Knitting,

I just love the picture of your two kitties. They're so cute! If ever you needed a picture of love, there you are!
Great pictures of your watercolours and knitting projects, too. Keep us updated!

Bren your work is beautiful. The watercolors are outstanding. Tell me more about the watercolors. Hope you're having a great week-end so far

Bren--good job on getting the pictures on. Looks like you're doing very well in knitting AND watercolor!

That's great. You will love it. Socks are very fun, and after wearing socks you made yourself, you will not want to wear store bought socks any more. Let me know how it goes.
