knit wear

Now that Autumn has arrived, having a comfy sweater is crucial. It is a long season and you don’t want to pull out the winter coat too early in the game – which is why I am a big fan of the bulky knit sweater. It’s great to throw on for morning walks to school and I keep it on if the house is cold and we’re too cheap to turn the heat up.

I’ve been eying Cowichan sweaters for a while and a few months ago when I popped into the local yarn store to pick up some yarn for my mom, I spotted this:

Turns out there is a free download for the Briggs & Little Canada Pride Sweater and better yet, my mom agreed to make it for me!

Sorry friends, she said she’d never make it again.
