When Boston-based author and long-time Churchmouse friend, Alexandra Dane, attended a writing retreat in Seattle, she stopped by the shop wearing a scarf that turned our heads. It was just the kind of thing we love—simple, simple, simple! Just a sheer tube of lace-weight mohair pressed flat, we have knit it again and again. It’s the perfect accessory to work on or wear for cross country flights. We’re so glad Alex shared it with all of us.
