Kits Kerchief - by Emily Wessel
I am a Kitsilano housewife; I sculpt my body at hot yoga, dine on organic food, and stroll down to the Granville Island Market for my weekly grocery-shop. I live the good life with my tall, dark, well-educated (and wealthy) husband. I have a busy volunteer schedule but still manage to find plenty of leisure time to bask in the sunshine at Kits beach and knit my heart out! (ok… I must admit, this is a fantasy.. but an interesting fantasy nonetheless!) This frothy little kerchief would is the perfect addition to the hottie housewife’s wardrobe. It also works for all the rest of us wannabes who still have to work for a living!
