Ladybugs in threes

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.

IMG_1052I love the ladybugs. They’re so bright.


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!
