I don’t know if you all know this, but I love to snuggle up with my knits in the winter time. I have a ton of scarves, gloves, mittens, and hats. I learned how to knit my freshman year of college. Then life happened, and I am happy to say that I have picked the hobby back up again 5 years later. Knitting is like a stress reliever for me. I only do it for only a few minutes to an hour, but it does the trick. If you want to knit, Wool and the Gang, Knitting Help, and Knit in the Loop are great resources.
If knitting isn’t your thing, you can still support some indie artist by buying their wares. Yokoo and Taylor House are great indie knitting options on both ends of the price spectrum. They make awesome scarves, gloves, hats, and other knitted accessories like puff ball headbands and snoods in great colors.
