Uncle Newt

I work hard at designing garments that reflect the life and times of our family.

This sweater is my own design and is called "Uncle Newt" in honor of my son-in-law's Uncle Newton Robinson, a Viet Nam vet and an Agent Orange victim. The yarn is created by me using Cascade 220- available here

Why I do what I do

These are my grandsons. They are wearing sweaters I designed and knit for them in Jawohl Sock Yarn available from Berroco.

Here is a sweater I designed and knitted for my daughter.

Noro Iro is the yarn- available from

I do a lot of different things. However knitting and sewing for my family is my passion. It gives me very great pleasure to visit their homes and see their children wearing things I made for them, walking on rugs I made for them, eating dinner on linens I made for them. On some esoteric level it helps me feel a part of their lives.
