OMG! These are the cutest mittens ever!!! Nice and soft, with a great cuff and the perfect size for my daughter's hands. And thank you so much for putting a knit tube string on them! I definitely don't want my daughter losing these. :)
Deep in the Heart of Texas
Although I hail from southeastern Wisconsin (on Lake Michigan about one hour north of Chicago), I have lived in Texas for nearly 40 years. After living in Houston the majority of that time, I sold my 1,900-square-foot home and gave away my furniture. I now live high atop a hilltain in a remote rural corner of the Texas Hill Country in a tiny handmade house that my husband and I built with our own hands.
I am a retired professional graphic designer with a BFA in Fine Arts and have been sewing and creating needlework for more than 55 years. My mom taught me the basics of knitting, crocheting, and sewing when I was very young, but I am mostly self-taught. Over the years, I have earned the coveted title of TKGA Master Hand Knitter, became a Craft Yarn Council of America certified knitting instructor, and completed the Crochet Guild of America Master of Advanced Crochet Stitches and Techniques program.
As a perfectionist by nature, I hold myself to very high standards. If I am not pleased with the final outcome of a project, you won't find it in my shop. All of this means you can expect a well made product — one that has uniform stitches and with all of the loose ends securely woven into the work — that has been created with pride from high quality materials.
How did the name Barking Dog Designs originate? The name is a spin-off from Barking Dog Graphics, the name of my graphic design studio, which was named in honor our cocker spaniel, Georgette. In her role as the official receptionist and greeter, she woofed and eagerly wagged her tail at everyone who came to the door.
At the suggestion of my youngest daughter, I became an Etsy seller more than nine years ago. I'm also a member of the Old Time Etsy team.

I am also on Etsy as:
Owner, Maker, Designer
I'm basically young at heart and having four young granchildren keeps me connected to the latest kids' styles. I also love bright vivid colors and enjoy experimenting with different types of yarns and textures.
