Fauna Redux

“A cowl for the promise of spring” was the phrase I had in mind while casting on for this ethereal little knit. I first designed and knit this cowl last February to bring a bit of leafy green spring color to my winter knits with a skein of Shibui Cloud. See the original post here! …

Slow Fashion October- Week 1- Intentionality in Fashion and Life

  Yesterday, I expressed how the philosophy of Slow Fashion factored into my closet. It meant higher quality clothes, more hand made, local, ethical…but what does Slow Fashion mean for my personal life? I certainly don’t spend all day standing in my closet (despite the temptation). In life, I have to ask ‘why’ a lot.…
