Obviously, clothing with a Scandinavian flavor is more fun to make as winter approaches. I am looking forward to creating some hooded capes and warm jumpers. Bright colors are very important in the long, dark Wisconsin winters, so gray and bleak. The only exceptions are the cardinals and a sky of an impossibly blue blue. So I will fill my sewing room with red and green and blue and gold, and maybe I will invest in some full-spectrum lighting.
