Sweaters to shrug off the chill
November is “fair warning” season. A premonition of winter, soon to blow flakes at our doorstep. It is the changing of the leaves that is the tip off with darkness creeping in at 4pm and the plummeting temperatures that is the harsh reality here. We all lived through it before, so just embrace it– and while you’re at it, why not dress the part?
You might need tights.
Here’s the fashion drill. November 2011 = many samples sales (run fast), Resort wear is in-store now, and December starts previews for Fall 2012. I consider walking around NYC on a blustery windy day almost as bad as ice-fishing in Alaska, but without the thrill. Outdoor winter activities, including walking to work, aren’t fun if you are cold. You know, blue fingers, wet hair, and a sore throat. Yeah, it sucks. So, what’s the point? Consider these thick yarns knit wits, and stay warm!
Here is a preview of MY favorite cozy things.

With nice warm things to wear, Winter isn’t so daunting. Bring on the snow, the wind and blustery air but, we’re ready with sweaters and socks….
