Given a sketch object selection, how would i get a reference to the sketch that owns it?

Suppose a user selects a sketch entity like so:

        annotation { "Name" : "Sketch Objects",                    "Filter" : (GeometryType.ARC || GeometryType.LINE) && SketchObject.YES,                     "MaxNumberOfPicks" : 100 }        definition.sketchThings is Query;
How would i go about getting a reference to the sketch object that contains it, so that i can add other items to the same sketch?

I know I can use evOwnerSketchPlane, but i want the sketch, not the plane.
I tried qOwnerBody() but that doesnt seem to produce a sketch object
