Twisted’s neighborhood is full of some of the most beautiful examples of Portland’s iconic Craftsman homes. I love strolling towards the shop when the gardens are in bloom and looking at all the beautiful details and pleasing angles these houses feature.

Along with our architecture, PDX is also known for its appreciation of all things locally made. Blue Moon Fiber Arts yarn Silky Victoria is locally dyed and domestically sourced - inspiring me to make something that celebrates our town. This is a deep scarf to snuggle into… as well as a lacy wrap that can get as dressed up as we do here. (Hint: our most expensive shoes are for hiking!)
