This design began with Countess Ablaze’s lemons to lemonade story about the distorted idea some businesses have about the value of unpaid “exposure,” bless their hearts. When I saw that she was inviting dyers and designers to create with her iconic If I Want Exposure, I’ll Get My Tits Out colorway, all to benefit charity, I couldn’t resist the challenge. My contribution is Southern Exposure.

In the south, there are two basic temperatures – indoors and outdoors - and those two are never compatible. If it is hot outdoors (which is most of the time), it’s positively frigid indoors. If it is chilly outdoors, it’s sweltering indoors. To survive the extremes, we southerners dress in lots and lots of layers. Southern Exposure is the perfect shawl to protect your bits from unwanted exposure of frosty winter days or zealous air conditioning. And the vibrant color is sure to brighten even the bleakest day.

20% of every pattern purchase will be donated to Girls who Code (, an organization whose single goal is to close the gender gap in technology.
