In the Pacific Northwest we do all we can to extend our summers. We sit outside until late in the afternoon, place a fire in the fire pit, sip a bit of wine, and stay out even later.
As the summer progresses towards fall you begin to feel a chill in the air. As the day transitions to that special moment of twilight, I get cold. So I created a little wrap that would let me stay outside and sip my wine for just a little longer.
This is a simple oversized wrap. There is plenty of space to wear it over a shirt or another sweater. Or even tuck a wee one in with you on your lap. A perfect little something to keep you warm by the fire.
