Once Springtime Bandit and the Ravelympics wrapped up, my knitting mojo decided to stick around. A little after, I had a baby shower to attend for my co-worker Bibi. Since she was expecting a little boy I decided to knit up Dream In Color's Rocketry Baby Cardigan. I love their colorways and have wanted to work with their yarns for awhile. I was having a difficult time trying to choose colors for the sweater. Once I went on Ravelry and saw Thanh's sweater, I fell in love. The colors worked so well together. I found out they were given in a kit from Purl Diva in Brunswick Maine. So, I called them up and ordered one for myself. I ended up getting the same colors as Thanh. You can see hers here (rav link).
Rocketry Baby Cardigan In-Progress
The sweater was so easy and quick to knit up. The directions were very clear. It''s knit from the top down. If you intend on making this cardigan with Classy, I suggest purchasing the yarn in a kit along with the pattern. I used very little yarn for each 10 row section. When I finished the body, I knit the sleeves and then picked up stitches to work on the border. it really turned into a beautiful sweater. As I said above, I enjoyed working with Classy. I love the array of colors it comes in and the fact that it's superwash helps too. I will definitely be adding this pattern to my go to pile for baby items.
