When I inherited two colors of yarn from another knitting project that didn't quite come to fruition, I wasn't quite sure what I would do with it myself. I searched the patterns at Ravelry looking for something with the right gauge and yardage to fit my stash. When I chanced upon the Little Honey pattern, I knew the striped ragalan sleeved sweater, with the little pockets, would be perfect. I went all the way up to a size 6 for the pattern just to make sure it would last at least one season.
Even though the sweater fits Jonas just right -- he doesn't care to wear it much, saying the sleeeves feel "rough". However, at the same time he's hitting me up for a purple sweater, so I suppose I have my work cut out for me to find a nice soft yarn for my next project.
I think the sweater looks adorable though and will still encourage him to wear it -- roughness and all.
