While hand-knits are an undeniable essential in the PNWer’s wardrobe, I saw the most adorable machine-knit knits that I had to share. It just seemed appropriate… given the weather.
A book that, sadly, we cannot keep in stock long enough to put online. It’s rather hard to get ahold of. In any event, I recently discovered her personal website via an article on her in The New York Times and have simply fallen in love with these hilarious and quirky cushions:

And now it is past 6 o’clock (PM) and I must toddle. This is a bit of a short post, but next week should be very interesting. Especially if I can shoe-horn in an interview before then!
