My Aspen, Colorado honeymoon in January was an adventure, especially when I took a wrong turn and unintentionally found myself in the midst of moguls. The stitch pattern of this convertible wrap echoes the twists, turns, and carved mounds I encountered that day, providing a reminder that knitting needles (not ski poles) are the only sticks that have any business being in my hands. Thankfully, there is no video footage of my awkward maneuvering off my bum and back onto my skis.
