It got cold this week and most of me is really upset about it. I can already feel my hands starting to crack and I’m pretty sure I can hear the trickling of my bank account as the oil kicks our heating system into gear.
But there is a part of me that’s kind of OK with this cold business. That’s the part of me who likes the idea of smelling fall spices baking in the oven while padding around in thick socks and huddling under a fat down blanket. The part that wants to drink hot cocoa while wearing fingerless gloves and a chunky scarf. The part of me that likes cozy.
I hate the cold but absolutely love a lot of the things that go right along with it. What the cuss? Does anyone else suffer from this major contradiction?
I’ve decided the only thing I can really do is embrace the change. So I decided to dive headfirst into a pile of cozy handmade knits and take you along for the ride.

Lest you think I’d forget the little boogers, I also rounded up a bunch of ridiculously adorable pieces for our bite-sized little buddies too…

I mean how could anyone not be excited about getting all cozy now? If my budget were limitless I would need to own (yes, physically need) every single piece in this post for either myself or the girls.
Which piece is your favorite? Are you a chunky scarf girl? Or a throw a beanie over the undone hair and run kind of lady?
