The inexplicable delights of the first snow are captured in the double knitting stitches of Winter Chic. Each year, I wait for a pre-sunrise wet nose wake-up call from Puddles indicating that the moment is ripe – the cold bitter frost will be met with joyful snow showers… that stick. Regardless of the hour, this must be celebrated! Bundling up in pajamas, snow boots, and Winter Chic we alternate between rambunctious play to stillness, marveling as the world transforms. As each flake drops and accumulates bathing the world in white, so the pattern in Winter Chic transitions from one color to the other at ever increasing intervals of joyful stitching.
