Whether The Weather

It is raining cats and dogs today! Like so:

(Other illustrations that I considered including: 1 & 2.) A person who is more accustomed to dramatic weather, e.g. not a Californian, might say that it's only raining puppies and kittens, but the downpour feels pretty substantial to me. We even had a few rumbles of thunder! It was positively thrilling. Well, happy April! Because April showers bring May flowers or whatever.

handmade knitted burgundy cowl, warm red cashmere sweater

This cowl was one of my gifts from Dagny Stangl for Sanae Ishida's Secret Valentine Exchange. I wore it immediately, when X and I went camping. In fact, my outfit was the exact same one you see in these pictures, which was perfect for sleeping outdoors because my cashmere sweater is so cuddly and warm.

  1. Someday, I would love to own something cashmere. The problem is, the kind of sweater it usually gets made into looks terrible on me, somehow... :-(

    1. That's a bummer, because it seems like exactly the kind of material you would like!

  2. I really like the expression that you captured in the arms-crossed pose. You come across as interested, friendly, and slightly amused all at the same time.

    1. Thank you! I guess that's roughly what I was going for.

  3. The last photo of you is such an interesting capture of a very wonderful face!
    (btw, it's totally not raining here! It's sunny + the snow is melting, making for very gigantic puddles!)

  4. Chunky rope cowl, ftw! I luvs it. I love the rough texture against the smooth band. Very pretty.

    Cashmere and merino wool are love too.
