When I thought about this sweater, the background music in my head was a song by Wilco called, "Sky Blue Sky". So, there you go. A sweater was born. I generally start with a sketch and idea
and match the yarn to it. With this top down raglan, the yarn and color came first. The simple shape, with the yarn over cable edging, makes me think of happy thoughts and days with blue skies.

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.
