I designed this shawl for my girl Cherie using SWTC Pure, which is so soft and drapes beautifully.

I considered adding tassels or fringe for about a week before deciding to leave it alone; I love how the geometric ends of each row fall when the shawl is worn. The pattern is for sale on Ravelry.

Book Review: Samhita Mukhopadhyay, editor, Nasty Women: Feminism, Resistance, and Revolution in Trump’s America
While the authors and writing in this essay collection are excellent, I could only read this book in small doses due to the subject matter. Honest, inspiring, and necessary reading.
