I just want to take a moment to thank my customers, blog readers and social media followers for your support. Modern Coup bags and blog had a very successful start this year. As a micro-business, it was more than I could have hoped for. So thank you very much. Have a great Christmas and Happy New Year.
I pulled together a few images of Fair Isle sweaters which always reminds me of the holidays. These ones are a modern take on the traditional knits from Scotland. Fair Isle sweaters were also made popular by AMC’s show, The Killing, where lead detective, Sarah Linden almost always had one on. So, this is also a little tribute to the show that has already wrapped up.
