sea to sky
cabled blanket in shifting colours
by Alexa Ludeman

A big part of what it means to live in Vancouver is being close to the ocean, the forest, and the mountains. There is nothing better than looking across the water to the majestic peaks of the North Shore.

This blanket was inspired by the road to Whistler, along the Sea to Sky highway. The road curves along a sheer slope with peaks to one side and a drop to the Pacific on the other.
