Craving Cozy Knits: Raquel Allegra, Toast, and North Circular

NYC has frozen over, and I'm gravitating towards all things warm. A few cozies to warm your winter days:

Raquel Allegra Cable Knit Cardi. Loving shawl collared cardis for the ladies, and this color is gorge in mohair.

Raquel Allegra Crop Cable Knit Sweater. Beautiful marled cables and a perfectly slouchy fit.

Toast Astrid Sweater (alas, currently out of stock). Love the extra-long sleeves -- keep hands toasty or scrunch 'em up to reveal a wrist adorned with a delicate bracelet or two. I've been seeing a lot of oversized sweaters paired with longer skirts lately. Seems counterintuitive, but the right combo makes it look anything but grandma. How to pull off?

North Circular Fingerless Mittens. How could you say no to these beauties after reading the description: "Hand knit (and signed) by grannies in the UK from locally shorn and organically raised sheep." And they're unisex.
