Keeping cozy when it's cold outside -- or in!

Knitwear Did you notice it's been hot this week in L.A.? While colder parts of the nation recover from record snowfalls, I've watched women here shopping in shorts and tees.

But we had some plenty-cold weather not too long ago, and more might be on its way. And it is always seriously-freezing-cold in my office, anyway. So I keep a wrap at the ready, a soft shawl to toss over my shoulders when the chill gets too chilly. Between office air conditioning and change-on-a-dime weather patterns, it seemed like it might be a good time to take a look at knits from some local artisans. Writer Steffie Nelson found three good ones to check out if you want something beyond a standard cardigan.
