“This whimsical pair of earmuffs was inspired by the large, aviator style headphones I see in the streets every day. For New Yorkers, these objects represent a type of insulation from your surroundings – a barrier to quiet the city noise. Metropolitan is a super-quick project and requires just one skein of super-bulky yarn. A great gift, they keep you warm, with or without headphones underneath!” - Jared Flood
