My line of accessories is unique in many ways from the colour ways, accents or yarn types. All pieces involved in my designs, excluding things like buttons, are all handmade and designed by myself. I am currently working on a line of Accessories starting with scarves, sweater, shawls, fingerless gloves, hats, ear warmers and more. They are very unique and I only use high end yarns such as 100% merino. I am currently adding fibres such as silk and baby alpaca, baby Llama, Cashmere and more…

I am currently adding fibres such as silk and baby alpaca, baby Llama, Cashmere and more to my designs for my higher end pieces. All are 100% handmade and designed by me. I would like to add other unique fibres including some hand spun fibres to add interest to my designs in the future. A combination of both knitting and crochet complete the pieces.

I previously owned and ran a knitwear business, called “Hey, Diddle Diddle, for 10 years. I went from designing and knitting ready to wear children’s hats, sweaters and woman’s wear to the knitting world and wrote and designed patterns etc. for my own line of designs as well as did some work for the knitting magazine “Cast On”, which at that time was a very popular magazine.

Most of my creativity comes from things around me such as nature, colours, shapes, people and anything that catches my eye inspiring me to create. I enjoy the texture, colour and fibres of the yarns I use which are why I have chosen to use only pure fibres as they are my favourite to use. As I continue to grow my artistic business and expand my creativity my designs will continue to change and evolve to new and exciting pieces. I will be adding other fibres such as cotton, organic cotton, bamboo, and more to my pieces. My goal is to make wearable art pieces to add flare and style to any wardrobe with a unique characteristic essence of the person who has chosen to wear them.

I design under my company name "Valerie Baber Designs" You can buy my designs at the Alberta Craft Council Gallery and Shop, in Edmonton, Alberta Canada. See their website at www.albertacraft.ab.ca for the location. They carry other specialty designs that are not on Intricate Knits Store.
