Winter Wear

Handknit accessories definitely make snow days a bit more bearable. Last winter, I knit a ton of these head warmers ($20 plus S&H) pictured below. They’re a fun alternative to full on hats and relatively easy to make. I first saw them two winters ago in my favorite neighborhood yarn store, Downtown Yarns, and was told I could find the pattern, Calorimetry, on Knitty. The first one I made was huge, and stretched out way too much, so per a knitting friend’s suggestion, I cast on 100 stitches, rather than 120, for a perfect fit. Last year I knit them up with Noro Silk Garden, which comes in the most vivid color combinations, and then sewed a vintage wooden button onto the back from a stash I found in my mother’s old sewing basket. The result: headgear that’s trendy and toasty warm. Email me at to place your order!



Keep your fingers toasty this winter with handknit mittens made from the highest quality merino wool. Available in a variety of colors in both kid’s and adult’s sizes. $35 plus $5 shipping and handling. Add a matching hat for $15.
