Last summer I visited my little sister, SB (an amatuer fashion maven and my muse, though she also has a responsible day job), in Washington, D.C. During one of many walks around Capitol Hill she showed me the Summerhouse, which was built in the early 1880s so that visitors to the Hill would have a water fountain. I fell in love with the little brick grotto with a garden and immediately filed it away in my memory. The lattice brickwork and romantic atmosphere basically begged to be knitted.

Whenever I design something I ask myself "Would SB wear this Where would SB wear this?" This transitional pullover screams "cool spring day on the Hill" to me. The lace and cable pattern seems solid from a distance, but at the right angle the eyelets really show. I'd love to see this knit up in a silky neon, or with the body one color and the sleeves in another. I can see this sweater dressed up or down, flirty or conservative, but it'll always be comfortable and cute. Just like SB.
