Three Days to Go!

Hello lovely backers,

When I created this project, I had no idea what day of the month Thanksgiving fell on, and the holiday was the furthest thing on my mind. It wasn't until yesterday that I realized this Kickstarter project was going to end on Thanksgiving -- what an amazing, unbelievably appropriate, serendipitous day. I am so thankful for all of your support as this month has unfolded. It's been so humbling and touching to see how many people have responded to my work!

We're now at 131% funded, which is amazing. Those additional funds mean that we'll be creating a shoppable website (yay!), and I already have a vendor in place for that. Miami and Brooklyn scarves will be coming in Q1 of next year.

AND! The scarves for all of you backers have arrived at my house, and they look beautiful. I think you guys are really going to love them. I can't wait to send them out. 

This is it -- we're in the home stretch. Just three more days to go! I encourage you to share this project in its final days -- post, tweet, talk it up. We're at 92 backers, and it would be incredible to hit 100!

Thank you all so very much. None of this would be possible without you. 

Happy Thanksgiving week,

      Hope, thank you so much! And Dana, that sounds extremely tempting. I've never been to Italy but have always wanted to go...!
