I've always loved to create. After becoming a mom, my creations have taken a new direction. My passion for color and love of nature that used to develop into paintings has transformed into a more functional, and less messy, form....fiber. Inspired by my loved ones, I now design and create little treasures to make life a tad more colorful and interesting.

Inspired by a favorite children's book in our home, Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney, the cables on this sweater are reminiscent of a winding path dotted with bright colored lupines.
In the story, a girl's grandfather inspires her to make the world a more beautiful place. So, as a grown woman, she sows lupine seeds all over her seaside town to make it more beautiful.
The design features a collar with 3 unique cables with the center cable winding down the length of the back of the sweater.
This cardi is knit top down with raglan increases and no seaming. Sleeves are placed on waste yarn and finished using double pointed needles or the magic loop method.
17 stitches and 22 rows over 4 inches in stockinette stitch
