So it seems all the cool kids have caught on to the hipness of cowls. My man friend works on photoshoots for pretty big clients and he told me a few months ago, I better get knitting because the cowls are all the rage this winter. Now more and more I am seeing them around, window displays at Ann Taylor, Kenneth Cole makes a pretty good looking cowl, along with various other places like H&M and TopShop.
American apparels "circle scarf" (a.k.a cowl):
One of my favorite stores I noticed was also carrying massively oversized cowls:
Along with a few other places.
At one point, I thought of it as competition - these bastards are taking something hand made and wonderful and mass producing and selling at a cheaper cost than us etsy sellers but you know what?
Fuck it. Mass production has nothing on hand made.
Off to Baltimore for a few days, maybe I'll knit some more cowls on the way there.
In the mean time, here are a few of my favoite etsy places to get some killer hand mades:
