Thanks to Ellita on Etsy, I'm going to be warm and stylish this winter in one of her unique, knitted wearable works of art. She makes the most gorgeous scarves, collars, stoles, cowls, and capelets. Many have a hint of the medieval or Elizabethan about them. And she has some of the most gorgeous product photography in her shop.
I bought the first one pictured: the Royal Leaf Button Collar. Not only is it stunning, but it is so well-designed. It keeps the entire back of the neck and shoulders covered, which seals in the warmth. I love that the collar can be rolled down, or on those colder days, rolled up to cover the ears. Not being a hat person, I just love this about it.
Eat it winter.
