By: Ashley Alfirevic, Editor, AllFreeKnitting

We bust out the circular needles for stockings and Santa hats. But what about the other cold winter months? We have a stockpile of knits for December, but what do we wear in January, February, and March? We need a different set of knits for the days when our holidays have passed but the cold remains.
