This sweater is an ode to strawberry ice cream, my
daughter's favorite. Whenever I would buy neopolitan
ice cream, everyone had their requests. Some
wanted mostly vanilla, or chocolate. Some of this
or some of that...My daughter wanted ALL of the
strawberry. A bright pink confection knit top down
with sweet little lace details, this cardigan is my
modern take on a the vintage girl's standard cardigan.

I love knitting. Through my love(some would say obsession), I have discovered the world of knitting design. I have always been drawn to different aspects of design, whether it be graphic design, home design, or fashion design. I am an artist at heart and I find myself most satisfied in the realm of knitting.
