This sweater was inspired by the colors in Luxor, Egypt. Years ago, my husband and I stayed in an old Mediterranean style hotel with white curtains in the tall hallways blowing in the wind against the periwinkle blue walls. Looking through the long hallways onto the Nile, which had a different shade of blue with sailing boats in more white and blue hues was magical. Later, the echiums in my garden had the same blue tones.
