gearing up for winter

This weekend we bundled up for a trip to MoMA and a quick stop to see the tree at Rockefeller Center. (We were there with just a few other visitors…whoa!) It’s really starting to feel like winter here in New York!

I’m starting to think about all the projects in Little Things to Sew that lend themselves perfectly to the cold. For example, the Cozy Bear Hood…

or the scarf with the hidden opening to fasten it… (shown here with the School Days Coat in a cozy wool/cashmere blend.)


Oliver + S Scarf


Or the little mittens.


Oliver + S Mittens


Or all three! Do you have any winter sewing on your list? Maybe a post-holiday project you’re planning? Something that will let you cocoon for a bit after all the festivities?

    The cozy bear hood is next on my list! I’m doing one in a dark gray velveteen lined with a gray Minni Muu mousie print and gray petersham ribbon for a new baby nephew.

    The hood is on my list too.

    I just wanted to say that I’ve made 2 pairs of little mittens for my daughters, from an old felted sweater. They are cute, easy and petty warm…it can get super cold whee we live (Alberta, Canada) so they might not always be warm enough but so far so good! (bonus…the girls love them and they are easy to put on!). Thanks for a great pattern!
