Big Herringbone Cowl, or, “I’m a Hipster!”
I finished my Big Herringbone Cowl recently, and I totally love it! When I wore it to the shop for the first time, something about the cowl, the stripes, the bird earrings, and the high bun made me feel like a hipster. So I tried to pose like one.
But then I realized that I don’t really know what a hipster poses like.
And Sweetie, my artistic director, wasn’t much help…yeah…
