All Set

And, ready for anything. Soups, pastas, salads…coffee, chai latte or warm cider. What more do you need? One large simple shallow bowl and an accomodating cup will take you from breakfast to dinner and back again. Add a handknit linen lapkin and you are ready to strap on that simplequietmodern feedbag. Think of how many cupboards you’ve emptied by bringing your dining experience back to what’s absolutely essential.

A little inspiration,

June 13, 2014

a little yarn and a little time. The Inspiration?… this modern 1926 textile design by Anni Albers. The yarn?… Berroco’s Modern Cotton. The time?…unbelievably, about 10 days…cast on to bind off. And the result?  Exactly as planned…a modern baby blanket that was intentionally “un-pink”.
