During a (rare) period of calm I managed to finish Elena’s ladybug cardigan. It’s knitted from Bendigo Woollen Mills Luxury 10 ply in Stone. The buttons are from Beutron.
Elena took off with one of the buttons while I was trying to sew them on. I guess I’m not the only one who loves the little critters.
The cardigan is a little on the big side, but she’ll grow into it over time. It will be two months until Canberra’s autumnal weather will require a cardigan, and hopefully Elena will be able to wear it again in Spring. That is, unless my little Miss finally has a growth spurt. Unlikely!
I’m becoming a big fan of Kelly Herdrich’s patterns. There are so many cute options – I’m hoping to cast on a Wyatt sweater for Hugo. Here’s hoping he turns out to be a good sleeper or I’ll never get any knitting done!
