Knitting for the Winter Solstice

As we turn toward the light again, I think about transition and cultivation in the new year.

Life is a journey, complete with challenges, successes, moments of doubt and uncertainty, and moments of connection and joy. Each of us experiences our own seasons and rhythm, and we each find our path in different ways.

Like a beautiful garden laid out in anticipation of the bounty to come, the Parterre Cowl highlights transition through both process and punctuation - the steady work of cultivation and the blossoms that reward the effort.
