Purple Snowpeas

Kathryn Short, the force behind Purple Snowpeas, is a photographer and all-around artist. She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art where she was a photography major. Kathryn now teaches art and photography at the high school level.

Kathryn loves to knit and crochet, take photographs while walking outdoors, craft small books for collecting thoughts, and anything else that keeps her hands busy.

She is super busy right now gearing up for the Savage Snowdrop Art and Craft Fair at the Carroll Baldwin Hall Saturday, February 16th. For all of you in the Baltimore/DC area, it runs from 9am -3pm. Kathryn says she will have more items listed in her Etsy shop after the craft fair. She is focusing on her hats after which she creates wristwarmers to match the hats. She also knits scarves to fit the season. The cute hat shown above is the Hand Knit Hat with I-Cord Loops, in Turquoise.

These Pink striped wristwarmers will keep your wrists and palms warm while your fingers are free to get things done!

-chilly office?

-cold steering wheel?

-jacket sleeves are a tad too short?

-need an accessory to go with that cute 3-quarter sleeve top?

I would be remiss if I did not include one of Kathryn's lovely photographs which depicts why she needs to knit warm hats and wristwarmers. Makes me want to go for a walk in these woods. It is entitled Wandering In The Woods.
