After the Rain
Short Description: Along the coast line of Western Michigan, vast beautiful sand dunes march up to the shores of Lake Michigan. The seed stitch motif in After the Rain reminds me of the way the sand on the dunes looks after it rains, creating lovely little ripples of texture that almost have a geometric pattern to them. This hi-lo, boxy tee is knit with Tern, a silk and wool blend from Quince & Co. that provides both warmth and breathability, along with a lovely drape, making it the perfect piece to knit and wear through Early Spring, Summer and Fall.
