Back in January 2011, when I was just starting out with Brooker Hollow, a friend and colleague of mine, Michael, would occasionally comment on Brooker Hollow photos I posted on Facebook. At the time, I was looking for people to try out samples, and so I made and sent him two chunky cowls to try out.
Michael recently made my day by forwarding a stunning photo that he took of himself with his partner, Derwin, all wrapped up in one of those cowls.
And here’s another one from the same shoot. Amazing:
I can say without hesitation that these are the best photos I’ve received from anyone who has worn Brooker Hollow knitwear. See more of Michael’s incredible photos and follow his Instagram feed here: afrographia.
A variation on the Ryerson Scarf, the Clay Scarf is half as wide, lighter, and built without a mobius. Try it by itself or twist two together for a pop of color.
Mimi really loved the look of the Wythe Scarf, so I made her this one custom one in Woodlands — a rich mixture of turquoise and umber shades. Pretty lady!
My sis looks beautiful in her new Brooker Hollow Wythe Scarf in berry. (And I don’t know if there’s a cuter kid out there. My nephew just got glasses.)
Here’s two of my favorite people wearing two of my favorite scarves.
Katie is wearing the Ainslie Scarf in heather grey. (This is the first infinite scarf I ever made: my knitwear company didn’t yet have a name, and we called it a scood, a cross between a scarf and a hood.)
David is wearing the Ryerson Scarf in stone.
I had a photo shoot today, and felt lucky to work with such an inspiring group of people modeling my knitwear.
