Float On Cowl


This project was inspired by a new local yarn shop that popped up in my hometown during the summer of 2021. Dappled Fern Fibers in Grand Marais, Minnesota is a serene little hideaway just off of Lake Superior’s shore that offers a thoughtful collection of fiber, books and notions. The store is a sensory treat!
