Brooklyn Tweed: Apart Together

Brooklyn Tweed: Apart Together

Pay What You Choose —  Support How You Can In the wake of the developing pandemic of COVID-19, there remains a lot of uncertainty and fear.

Lovely Ivon

Lovely Ivon

I’m a coziness lover, forever drawn to any sweater that provides the singular comfort of a blanket or bathrobe, in a style fit for everyday wear. When our first sample of the Ivon Cardigan arrived at BT late last summer, I tried it on and immediately experienced that stealthy robe-ness that I crave, particularly when Fall and Winter are looming large on the horizon.

In this new year of reevaluation and introspection, we are turning the spotlight onto individual pieces in a conscious...

The Best Worst Sweater

The Best Worst Sweater

A decade of knitting may as well count for a century’s worth, given all the technical growth and knowledge expansion I have accumulated in that time. My Grandma Ause taught me to knit when I was a freshman in college. Throughout my childhood she was always knitting, lovingly working her way through 10 grandkids' worth of feather-and-fan afghans. When I came home for that first Christmas break, I swept her off her feet, out to lunch and then, eagerly, to a yarn store. I just had this feeling that I would love knitting. I hadn’t ever tried it and she had...
