Having daughters of similar ages I enjoy following Shannon's blog luvinthemommyhood. I can symphathise with her challenges in balancing work and life, and really love her fabric choices. She's not daunted by anything and I really wanted to support her pattern release for the commuter cowl. I made this almost a year ago and with autumn on the horizon I'm glad I've got this to wear again. I may make myself a new one this year, perhaps in a voile but closer fitting to the neck.
