Speed knitting

A gorgeous girl turned one this week. She lives in Tasmania so I don’t see her and her mother, my friend, much at all. Imagine my surprise when I got a text earlier in the week that her mum would be in Canberra for a visit today!

I cast on yesterday lunchtime with haste…and knitted like my life depended on it. I was sewing on the last button just as our doorbell rang. Good timing! I really should get more organised with my birthday knitting.


The cardigan is my old fallback pattern (the only smart option when time is limited) in a yarn I dyed myself. I purchased the buttons when out shopping with this friend, so they were a natural choice for the gift. Ravelry details are here. Luckily she didn’t mind me snapping a few hasty pictures before it left the building.


We’ll have a slow weekend – the weather’s forecast to be pretty grim and Hugo’s not well. We’re headed for a quiet one inside, I think.
