My idea of a perfect afternoon is sitting in bed with a kitty in my lap and knitting needles in my hands, creating something that’ll bring warmth to myself or someone I love. I call this the joy of creation: that simple happiness I get from making something with my own two hands.
Of course, my favorite things to make are clothes. Whether I’m knitting, crocheting, or sewing, I completely geek out over learning new techniques and daydream up my own designs. Recently, I’ve realized how making my own clothes—something I’ve been doing for over a decade—ties neatly into my slow fashion journey.
