During the week I had the absolute pleasure of hanging out in the park with one of my lovely friends and her two (incredibly gorgeous) kids. We had so much fun – playing in the leaves, finding acorns and watching the fish swim by.
The reason we were there was to do a “I’ll take photos of you and you’ll take photos of me” session. I wanted new photos of myself because I had a new cowl design that I was busting to get out in the world and here it is!
I’ve been dreaming about this design for a while now.
At Finders Keepers last year so many people told me they’d love to make a chunky cowl. I knew I had a design bubbling inside me and I was waiting for it to land in my consciousness.
And then the first seeds of inspiration arrived.
This cowl design has been through a couple of different design iterations – I’ve been wearing them to test them out – until finally discovering “the one”.
It’s gorgeously chunky without being too big, and it sits beautifully whether it’s worn wrapped tightly around your neck or just hanging casually like a super big necklace.
I’ve fallen head-over-heels with my soft and squishy cowl and I’m wearing it whenever I can!
When it came to naming this cowl it took me awhile to find a name that felt right. Then, as I was reviewing my Grounded Stool pattern, I realised that it used the same hook size and stitches and therefore it should be the Grounded Cowl!
This name felt just right.
Staying grounded and in my body is something I’ve been focusing on lately and it’s helping me to feel more peaceful, happy and productive.
I’ve been calling on the vibrational powers of Balance, Vetiver and Patchouli essential oils to help me feel grounded and their essence is woven into the design.
I’m so excited to share the Grounded Cowl with you.
Whether you’d love one “made for you” ($65) or you’d love a “make your own” kit ($65), you can pop over to my website now and be one of the first people to have your very own Grounded Cowl.
Pop over here to order your Grounded Cowl now.
I hope you have a week that’s full of peace and happiness. If you’re around Sydney don’t forget that Finders Keepers is on next weekend – I’d love to see you there!
With love, Lynda.
