This sweater has existed in my mind for years now, ever since we started taking our son hiking in the high desert of Southern California. There is a road called Soledad Canyon Road that winds through the landscape past rock and scrub. Soledad the sweater grew organically from the idea of that road, and when I discovered the perfect cable in a stitch dictionary everything just fell into place.
