    As a typical excitable Aries I usually like for my accessories to match my inner fire. I found myself gravitating towards crimson hues this winter and was surprised to discover how well the zodiac scarf for my sign meshed with my wardrobe. I could definitely see myself rocking this scarf with a flared red dress, black leggings, and knee-high riding boots for a night out with friends.

    With the winter Olympics less two weeks away I can feel the anticipation mounting. I'm usually not a big fan of sports but whenever the Olympics come around I always find myself getting swept up in the excitement. I'm instantly hooked after watching the opening ceremonies and immediately start searching online for the schedule of my favorite events. While watching the US competitors perform astounding acts of athleticism while clad in their dazzling red, white, and blue uniforms I can't help but feel a little patriotic.

    embroidering mittensAfter Lion Brand was featured in David Muir’s Made In America segment on ABC News (check out the video here!), I decided to help our Design team create our own version of the Olympic mittens. The Design team made the mittens first with our American-made Heartland yarn. Next, I got to design the embroidery to give the mittens some patriotic flare. The embroidery went pretty quickly, maybe 15-20 minutes per mitten and I was sort of figuring out the design as I did it. Then they were sent back to the Design team so they could write a pattern for our customers!
