Gypsy Soul: A Knit Lookbook

This fall/winter knits collection is called Gypsy Soul.
I designed and knit this collection for you.
For the free spirits, the adventurers, the nomads, the wanderers, the vagabonds, the travelers, the road trip takers, the seekers, the wanderlust filled hearts, the explorers.
For the gypsy in all of us.
Essentially, I wanted to create necessity knits for the wandering soul.
Namely inspired by my ever constant living on the road as well as this song. I wanted to bring you pieces that I hoped you would love and enjoy, but also ones I personally love and enjoy and wear throughout my own travels and adventures. 
Wherever they may be. 

This collection was shot in Urbanna by my always insanely talented friend Meagan Abell.
Having it shot in and around the marina with various boats and water-bound crafts was, of course, idyllic.
I am, after all, the daughter of a sailor.
The water has me ever looking outward and onward to my next adventure. 
Whether it is in fact on sea, or on land.
Similarly, I hope this collection inspires the same for you, as it does for me. 
After all, the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.

"We were born before the wind
Also younger than the sun
Ere the bonnie boat was won 
As we sailed into the mystic

Hark, now hear the sailors cry
Smell the sea and feel the sky
Let your soul and spirit fly
Into the mystic 

I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float 
Into the mystic” 

-Van Morrison
