I’m super excited about my latest design because it was inspired by a fan* on Etsy! My braided one-arm cowl is super versatile because you can slip it on over a tank or t-shirt on a slightly cool night (ahem, LA) or layer it over a sweater or light jacket or even under a heavy coat.
It’s tough knitting chunky cowls in LA – I love wearing my creations, but I just look delusional doing it when it’s 80 degrees and sunny outside. Fortunately, it’s been cooling down a little bit at night and then I feel perfectly justified throwing on a cowl and boots to make my breezy cotton dress more cozy.This snuggly cowl pops on easily and is available here!
These four little words puzzle me. I realize that “Do What You Love” is not a choice that everyone has. Does my pursuit of a selfishly idealized life come at the expense of others somehow? Am I just being a spoiled American brat? My parents moved to a country where they knew no one and gave up their dreams to make sure I got an education and would never know poverty. And I quit my secure well-paying corporate law firm gig to “find myself”?
I’m still struggling with those questions. But I do know that, uncomfortable though it may be, I want to take a hard look at my life and myself. Because a happy me doing what I love has got to be better for the universe than a sad, depressed me. Or, more likely, the universe doesn’t give a damn and in that case, my puny struggles are moot =)
So for now, I’ll settle for this:
BTW: You can buy this little 5×7 original watercolor with hand-drawn calligraphy at my Etsy shop for just $10!
