Pink and grey revealed as coconut ice ....

This stripe combination reminds me of coconut ice - not that I've ever seen a piece with grey through it!

The bit I absolutely hate about knitting stripes is sewing all the ends in ...

Choosing the right button ...

Oh my goodness me, you just whip them up so quickly!
That is one pretty cardigan!
I hate sewing the ends in too, have you got any tips on sewing them in so they don't ever pop out?

Hi Nikki - thank you! I always try to knot the 2 ends right at the edge (just in case they do unravel at least there's a knot to stop them going any further - hopefully!),I always try to use the back of a purl stitch and then finally depending on the pattern, I usually weave in and out across rather than up and down. I leave enough of the end to do a good few stitches along the row rather than just 2 or 3 ...

Thanks Glennie, great advice, I shall use it the next time I have to stitch in the ends!
