I feel like everything would be better if I had a pair of these socks. By Richer Poorer for Poketo, $12.


It is currently 43° outside, dark gray skies, cold and quiet. I have to admit, like a small child who is scared of the dark, I’m scared of winter.

In order to distract my nagging thoughts that I should invest in a SAD lamp, I’m sharing these uplifting winter knitted things.


Sourpuss Knits: Really simple graphic hats and scarves by Lorraine Murray. Her hats feature a detachable colored pom pom so you can mix and match and coordinate to your endless winter’s delight. And, unisex!

Winter cable beanie: Knit hat by kckshop (keep calm and knit) on etsy. These hats are handmade by Giulia, who lives in Milan, and offers lots of colors. Don’t you just love that etsy makes it possible for her to sell her stuff to the world?


allknitwear.com:  Not for the faint of heart. Lots of color and pattern pretty much declares war on old man winter.

From The New York Times livelymorgue.tumblr.com — a collection of photos from the legendary photo archives.

Aug. 3, 1935: “First Aid for the lifeguard’s beauty and romance.” From the Mid-Week Pictorial, the young buck Derwood Brough, at a beach in Rochester, sported a “soft leather nose guard which he devised after his girlfriend had announced she would not go out with him if his nose became cherry red.” The caption did not say whether she would also not go out with him if he wore the soft leather nose guard.

To brighten the forecast outlook, I am sharing some of the cute spring coats I have noticed at Zara. C’mon sunshine, we need you to help bring back the cute — it’s buried somewhere underneath the endless layers and Heattech long underwear.
