It’s that time of year, you know, the wake-up-with-a-cold-tip-of-the-nose, resist-turning-on-the-heat-at-all-costs time of year. (Damnit, I turned my heat on yesterday and it pained me.)

Local knitter Fiona Blanchard, a NSCAD grad and brilliant crafter (who'll have her first pattern published by slick UK mag PomPom Quarterly this winter) will make grinning and bearing the forthcoming season shift much easier.

Find her line Fiona Alice, and cozy pieces like these baby llama fingerless mitts ($50), matching headband ($40) or chunky circle scarf ($140) at J&R Grimsmo (1533 Barrington Street), at the next Halifax Crafters market (November 30-December 1) and via etsy.
