Just in from Karen Johnson for March! Must haves! Favorite extra layers!


100% cotton ribbon yarn crocheted into an infinity cowl, intended to coordinate with the wool/silk top.

The crochet stitch is called moss stitch, or linen stitch.

The feel of the yarn fabric is soft.

Indeed, so superbly soft and versatile.

Hand made by Karen Johnson, textile and jewelry artist.



100% acrylic bulky yarn cowl in shades of lime green, beige, cream, gray-blue and dark gray.

It’s a transitional-weather item.

Yarn is Isaac Mizrahi roving, in color “Sutton”.




Merino wool and silk DK weight knit popover top.

The color is lime alternating with cool gray.

It is  mostly stockinette stitch, with a lattice yoke and seed stitch armhole edges.

“I  like the crinkly look of the yarn (it’s that way because I had to “frog” most of the front, to re-apportion the yarn).”  –Karen Johnson




Q: How, you might ask, did the weather quote “in like a lion, out like a lamb” quote about come to be?
A: Since March is such a changeable month in which we can see warm, spring-like days, or late season blizzards, you can understand …

If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. … Weather folklore sayings are as colorful as our imagination. … So, if a month came in bad (roaring like a lion), it should go out good and calm (docile, like a lamb).



 “The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by. 
When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.”
