Etsy Schmetsy: Tweeder

Autumn is upon us (mind you, in San Francisco that mostly means delightfully summer days, but I digress) and in New York it’s Fashion Week. Time to put away summer’s lightweight casuals and pull out the warmer, dressier heavy hitters. I am talking about woolen tweed, which in the world of handmade crafts has been reinvented from stuffily professorial – the stuff of John Hodgman and Rupert Giles – to adorable and flirty.
