Here:

A week full of knitting my improv, top-down raglan, which necessitated a full unraveling of sweater v.1. Even though I’m already thinking about fall and enjoying the streak of cool weather, I’m still trying to embrace the sunshine and the local colors it creates. (More on that soon).

(And,ย a resounding NO.)
(And yes:ย 3 fresh takes toward #30Wears)

Looking forward to Grace Bonney’s new book on creative women, which I just found outย includes my current favorite comedian, Cameron Esposito, whose words are meant for me directly, I’m sure.

Not your average jeans-jacket

Even better blues: my friend Beth won WIP of the week (and secretly I think we all just want to wear that outfit).
