Kristen lives in Idaho's breathtakingly beautiful Upper Country with her energetic and varied family of eight. If you click on her profile you can go to her blogs - Double Dyed Designer for crochet designing info - or Verity Vintage Studio for vintage-themed posts.

The Vintage Fashion Expert:

Kristen collects vintage hats and gloves (among other things), loves antiquing and dressing up in costume or semi-costume at any excuse - or even just because. She enjoys sharing her tips for a historically accurate costume or reproduction look in clothes or hairstyles, as well as repurposing vintage finds in an effort to demonstrate how femininity can be practical and beautiful every day.

The Crochet Designer:

Kristen has been designing for more than 3 years. Her crochet designs have been featured in Crochet World, Crochet! Magazine, Storey's 101 Crochet 1-skein Wonders, Crafts 'n' Things, and Love of Crochet. Her designs can also be found on the websites of Kraemer Yarns, Coats and Clark/Red Heart, Cascade Yarns, and Knit Picks. She loves all facets of her work...or passion, rather...not least the work-at-home aspect where she can set her own pace and take long walks with the little ones on glowing summer days, and love the gracious life - country livin' - in general.

She is also a writer (historical fiction especially), a born cook, loves reading, lost gems in music, American history, the Old West, Idaho in particular :-), and anything graciously feminine; and has been abundantly blessed in all things by our Lord and Savior, in whom 'we live, and move, and have our being." Acts 17:28
