want one, purl two

In an attempt to shake off my blog-slacking, and because the slight chill in the air that’s shown up lately has me turning on the ceramic heater in my office more often than not, I’ve been spending a lot of time browsing things to keep me warm on Etsy, and thought I’d share some of my faves.  Click on any of the images to go straight to the listing for that item.

For one, I’m obsessed with fingerless gloves/convertable mittens.  It’s not THAT cold yet, but commuting in the cold last year taught me that if I want to be able to get my bus pass out of its holder and swipe it, I need full access to fingers and thumbs. I’m wishing I had one of these lovely pairs for this winter:

grey fingerless gloves from homelab. sadly sold out, but maybe more will show up soon, i hope?

Of course, it’s not just my hands I need to keep warm! Can’t forget my head! What was that stat about losing most of your heat through your head? I can’t remember. Either way, I’m pretty sure I also lose a lot of heat through my icicle fingers and toes, but keeping my ears warm is high on my priority list.

seller moaningminnie has a lot of adorable hats, like this tweed cloche for $42.50.

And of course, I can’t forget my personal obsession: things to keep my neck warm. Somehow, a scarf around my neck seems to keep me warmer than a heavy coat, and is much comfier as far as avoiding the “I can’t put my arms down!” over-layered feeling. Non-traditional neck warmers seem to be particularly cool on Etsy these days.  Maybe I’ll have to branch out from my usual pashminas!

would i look cool or silly in a neck ruff? lemonlime muff, $55.80 from MegnificientCo.

  1. love some of the hats, the fingerless mittens, & the ruffly green scarf. but i gotta say that $35 for fingerless gloves is ridiculous. learn to knit or get a friend to knit some. my coworker knitted me the cutest peacock blue fingerless gloves for work (complete with fancy cable design) & i love them dearly.

  2. Oh, Sarah. I imagine that you and I must suffer from the same malady—i.e., not having enough cold days on which to wear our beloved winter clothes. Every year I have to remind myself NOT to buy certain items, because I know I’ll never get enough use out of ’em in Atlanta. Damn the Southeast.

  3. Kivrin– I’m definitely in the same sitch. Winter clothes are my favorites, particularly cords, sweaters, and scarves, so I have to resist the urge to buy too many. Though my hubs is from Colorado, and we hope to end up back there some day, so I just justify new winter-clothes purchases by saying I’ll use them when we move!

    Sharon– you’re right, they’re pricey. I just need to find more patterns to send to my knitter mother!
