Fresh Air Looks

Monday, March 28th, 2016

That cooped up feeling is almost over, and in exchange we can look forward to welcoming in warm breezes, wide open spaces, and lots of get-outside-and-enjoy-the-outdoors time.  This season Katia captures the ‘open look’ of the moment with a collection of knitted and crocheted designs, a visual treat, simulating that fresh air feeling that we have been patiently waiting for.
