The impending cooler temperatures mean that layered ensembles are coming back. But rather than lamenting over the eventual arrival of coats, sweaters, and boots, have some fun with your fall and winter outfits. Stylish accessories like scarves and gloves can make the cold, gray days seem brighter, and NB Gloves and Mittens is just the place to start. The Lithuania-based shop is the work of crafter Natalija Brancevičienė, and she creates knitted fingerless gloves whose designs will appeal to a wide range of personal styles. Best of all, the garments are made with a cozy blend of wool and acrylic yarn to ensure that your wrists and hands will stay warm.
Brancevičienė offers both beauty and whimsy in her impressive collection of knitting. Many of her handmade fingerless gloves feature pretty patterns of colorful florals whose long blooms traverse the length of the knitted accessory. Other creations use a special stitch technique and produce a three dimensional surface pattern of scallop shapes. In these garments, Brancevičienė layers the ruffles to look like feathers and makes the otherwise basic knitwear into a pair of wise owls.
Brancevičienė's three daughters inspire her creativity. The girls, along with a love of learning and discovering, encourage her to continually hone her craft in new and exciting ways. You can own a piece of Brancevičienė’s imaginative world by visiting her Etsy shop.
