Living a Making…


From the land of Pterotactyls, I put down the needles for a second to write this post amidst many changes here at Marc Smollin Designs.  As some of you may already know, I have acquired a workspace in Berlin at Urbanstr. 88.  If you are in Berlin, you can stop by to visit me anytime I’m in the studio!

To prepare the showroom, I have decided to turn back the clock and focus on my first design ever, the Pterotactyl.  I am in the middle of knitting a limited run of 10 shawls using alpaca, bluefaced leicester, and cashmere in a wide range of color combinations that will, for the first time ever, be made available for purchase to the public.  So for those of you who have been asking me for years to own their own MSD, this holiday season you are in luck!  Stay tuned for shopping info…

With production in the works, I am very busy knitting these days.  But I am still weaving textiles in the studio, and a plan is slowly forming to create a complete line of knit- and woven-wear for 2016/ 2017.  Soon, MSD will break out of the world of accessories and find it’s home in the world of fashion.

Until then, you can always watch me working in the studio (when I’m there) in the live feed.
