I have a secret. I am obsessed with all things Etsy and all things Winter ♥ While there are aspects of Winter that can be dreary and at times frustrating (i.e. driving in snow, dark days, extreme cold), overall I really do love the season! I mean hello I live in Ohio! One of the many things I love about this season is the fashion! Big knit sweaters, scarves, hats, leggings, fuzzy boots…I mean come on guys, need I say more! When I think of knit sweaters, I always think of my Grandma ♥ While she is no longer with us, her memory lives on through the knitted treasures she made for me and my family. I still have the very first sweater she knitted for me when I was born (a darling pink hoodie with my name), and I treasure the last knitted item she made for me, a pair of navy blue mittens It is because of creative and artsy women like my Grandma and my Mom that I am obsessed with Etsy. Why buy a generic store bought knit item when you can purchase a handmade, authentic piece created just for you! There are so many amazing shops to choose from on Etsy, but my absolute favorite is…
While there are numerous shops on Etsy that provide knit items, Pleasantly Plump Knits is truly one of a kind ♥ Owner and artist, Meghan, initially started to knit as a hobby. This hobby and passion quickly transformed into a major driving, creative force in her life! This self-taught knitter has taken her natural artistic talent and passion for knitting and developed an amazing line of unique and authentic Winter pieces.
My favorite piece is The Mavis (shown above). This was the piece that first caught my eye on Etsy ♥ This Katniss Everdeen (#bossbabe) inspired cowl vest is absolute perfection! Psssst, dear husband this would be a great gift option if you are ever in need of a gift idea for me!
The Mavis is not the only amazing knit piece Meghan offers on her Etsy shop. Whether you are looking for a scarf (cowl), hat, headband, wrist warmers or accessories for your favorite beverage, I promise you will find something at Pleasantly Plump Knits! While I truly love The Mavis, I ended up purchasing one of Meghan’s adorable Winter hats to help keep me warm during my daily Winter adventures with Reagan and Zara!
I ordered The Phoebe in Lemongrass and I absolutely love it! It is very fashionable, warm and cozy. I am all about fashionable and functional pieces, and this hat fits the ticket! The Phoebe is perfect for both mild Winter weather (yes, climate change is real) and traditional Winter weather! Trust me, while I love Winter, I am a freeze baby! I know it makes no sense, but it is true…just ask my husband. So when I say this hat will keep you warm, it will keep you warm!
