We were so excited to be part of this New York Times article (in the Style Section of the print edition on Sunday, May 1oth)! It features Doomsday Knits, a book by Alexandra Tinsley and published by my friend Shannon Okey. But it also features our “Come the apocalypse, I will have clothing” shirt design from 2016. It’s a wonderful article, without a single mention of grandma, rocking chairs or surprise that men knit too! So delighted to be part of it, along with the amazing Franklin Habit and of course, Shannon Okey.
By the way, get a copy of Doomsday Knits before it’s gone again!!
