While the Siskiyou mountain range is not the highest of ranges in the Cascades, it sure can make travel between Oregon and California trikcy in the winter. After being caught on the wrong side of the pass on a trip, I was inspired to make a fun cowland matching coffee sleeve. You could also use knit this shorter and use it as a wrist warmer or bangle bracelet. Knit it longer and use it as a headband. I just love knits like this!
