The weather in Brooklyn is officially in its winter phase. I know it’s only November but the windchill or the frost didn’t seem to get the memo. What better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than with cozy knits? Accessodium’s creations make me want to sip cocoa by a fire.
Tanya was nice enough to offer this gorgeous handspun yarn, handknit cowl ($50) for one lucky reader of The Walkup. Ready to enter? Use the giveaway widget below.

Accessodium was created by Tanya, who is originally from the Ukraine, but now living in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Tanya grew up watching her grandmother knit so naturally, it seemed magical to her. As a child, she knew one day that she would able to make things as well as Granny!
Accessodium’s shop holds knits, crocheted beanies, scarves, leg warmers, gloves, brooches, cowls, skirts, bookmarks and anything that can be dreamed up with imagination and wool.
Now, once a week Tanya visits a farm, where she learns about wool production, and other fibers such as alpaca and angora goat fibers. She can carde, dye and spin wool. Being able to use handmade yarn from homegrown animals is a lot of work.
For Tanya it’s hard to say which one is a hobby and which is work – yoga or Etsy. She loves do both! Here are other things that make her tick:
- EAT: I love sushi and Japanese food in general. So any good Japanese restaurant is my favorite place to eat.
- SEE: I fell in love with Arizona. I have been there many times; I love how it smells and I love its beauty.
- SHOP: I like Free People, even though I do not shop there too often, I visit the shop for inspiration.
- DO: I like mountain hiking with my family or friends. For our last hike we went to Yosemite National Park.
