Going through high school and adolescence is hard enough, but what if you had a strange medical condition that meant you could only consume blood? In the Jacob Maresbeth Chronicles, a young-adult trilogy just published by Brandy Schillace through Cooperative Trade, 16-year-old Jacob might wish that he had all the style and assurance of an Edward...

Knitting: Beanie, Toque
You’ve felt them before: those lavishly soft skeins of alpaca yarn, their fiber lovingly grown on small farms. You cannot resist taking one home. The obvious next question is what to do with it. Alpaca drapes luxuriantly and warms abundantly, qualities that are both a blessing and a curse. The fiber simply doesn’t behave like merino and ot...

Inspired by the Italian provenance of the Volute yarn used for the design sample, this men’s zippered cardigan has a European flair.
