Cozy knits and stripey stripes

I made this cozy knit sweater last year while I was pregnant.

Rocketry cardigan by Dream in Color Designs

It almost fits Pud, the sleeves are still a little too long. One drawback to this design is that the bottom edge of the cardigan rolls up when the cardigan is not buttoned-up. This is because the ribbed edge is knit around the edge of the cardigan in one long piece. Something to think about when you're selecting a pattern.

Here's Pud modeling the sweater, and an ill-fitting toque (I didn't use a pattern) in Tofino last week:

A friend recently recommended the knitting and crocheting site, Purl Soho. Purl Soho sells hip patterns and beautiful yarns. Looking forward to finding a new fall project!
