Watching the Winter Olympics?

The Winter Olympics will soon have me spending many hours sitting in front of my television. I never miss the opening ceremonies and find the events amazing. I’ll be watching with pride as our US team (wearing their “Made in the USA” designer outfits by Ralph Lauren) wow us with athletic feats and exciting Olympic events. Certainly I’ll be getting out my needles or hooks as I watch. Since I need to choose a project, I was going through our website for patterns for hats, scarves and other accessories. I’m thinking that many of you will also be looking for projects to keep your hands busy while watching the Olympics…so I’m sharing some of the ideas that use “Made in the USA” yarns (so appropriate for Olympic-watching projects). Here are 14 accessories using yarns like Super Saver, Team Spirit, With Love, Super Saver Chunky, Soft and Super Soft. Red Heart has 17 yarns that are Made in the USA.
