BEHIND THE NAME: After looking at the finished sweater, memories of our trip back in 2012 to Breckenridge, Colorado passed through my mind. The winding cables mimic the curvy slopes that we skied down and the overall look of this sweater reminded me of the traditional town itself!
Funny story. My car wouldn't start while we were there. (Good ole' PT Cruiser for ya!) So we hitch hiked our way to and from the slopes. (Shhh. Don't tell my mom!) Swipe to see a few memories and meet one of the families that helped us!
