As the New Year begins, I’ve been thinking a lot about making vs. buying.
I’d always rather make what I’m wearing than buy it, so I hit the search button and started making a list of pretty things I’d like to be wearing this year. Turns out, it’s a BIG list!

Then I went to our pattern search, to find similar pieces to what I found in the online shops. I found our Cuff-to-Cuff Sweater. I’m planning on making it with Treasure yarn, in the Mosaic color way, I love blues & greens! The sleeves will also end up being longer, perfect for being cozy on the weekends!

These were made and collected by an initiative spearheaded by the Super Bowl Host Committee to make scarves in the Indiana Colts colors (blue and white). Two of the official colors were Super Saver 385 Royal and 311 White. The committee originally wanted to receive 8,000 scarves to give to volunteers on game day, but they have surpassed that goal with over 12,000 received to date.
