Classic Maker’s Mark Manhattan with Sweet Vermouth, Bitters, and one cherry, served straight up and chilled. My signature drink these days.

Sewing Notes: men’s shirting style fabric; not so lightweight interfacing; 1/2 yard of each; adjust buckle; completed in 2 hours and some change.
I took a bow tie sewing class at Gather Here in Cambridge with my favorite shop owner, sewer, and teacher, Virginia Johnson, on Thursday evening. Since I’ve been wearing bow ties as part of a regular work clothing rotation and style, this class was kismet.
Snaps of the finished product, forthcoming.

Purl Bee’s Big Herringbone Cowl, knitted by my sister Nicole in a luxerious alpaca and gifted to me for Christmas. Thanks, Boston, for making it so unseasonably warm this winter, that I can’t wear this without dying of sweat.
See some of the cool things my camera did when I snapped some mirror shots of the cowl, here.
