With winter coming all along the northern hemisphere (and in many places, it feels like it's already arrived) it's time to start stocking up on those warm, cuddly knits again. This is one of the reasons I love this time of year, in fact.
I love scarves and gloves and all those wonderful winter accessories and, although many people don't realize this, they can be more than just a method of keeping warm.
Scarves can be worn so many different ways and can be purchased to match outfits, make statements, etc. Same with your other knit accessories. So why not celebrate winter by coordinating the knits you wear with your outfits?
Today's shop, Branda on Etsy, is filled with a variety of knits just for such an idea. They have mitts and cuffs, hats and berets, cowls and scarflettes, scarves and shawls and even a terrific selection of discounted items (at a 30% discount) for pinching your pennies while doing your winter shopping!
The shop is filled with clear, crisp photos and is even organized by color to make it that much easier to find your favorite color or that perfect shade to match the outfits you want to accessorize. And each of their pieces is 100% hand knit as well with a careful eye for quality in every stitch.
Ran by a pair of remarkably talented sisters (Mariana and Paula) in Buenos Aires, Argentina who not only create beautiful knit items for their shop but also have degrees in Architecture and are crafty in a variety of ways besides knitting including designing stained glass art work as well as macrame owl jewelry and original spiral-bound artwork notebooks.
