AT LAST..........



At last, this little beauty is home and dry! It's been on the needles way too long and waited much longer than it should for its moment of glory. But well worth the wait! 


 It's a very easy plain knit, as you can see, but just right for a busy one and three quarters year old!


I really wanted plain buttons but had no success finding any that were both the right size and the right colour. These little wooden ones were languishing amongst several hundred other buttons in my button tin. Good to use up stocks, but I'm not sure whether I like them on the garment or not.


As you can see we are in fuschia heaven again at the moment. They all seem to have burst into full bloom this week, as the temperatures have warmed up again. They make a beautiful show of colour as the autumn 'nips' begin to rear to rear their little heads. 


Such delicate, pretty flowers!


Right, now I can get down to some sock finishing, as well as rescue my Cosy blanket that has spent a peaceful summer in solitary hibernation. I won't rouse him just yet, as he may be rather grumpy. Maybe next Sunday!

I like the buttons on the cardigan. Yay for finishing it! I too have dug out my Cosy blanket and am wondering if crochet might be easier for me than knitting right now. Have a good week. xx

I think the buttons are perfect for this little hoodie. I can see this getting a lot of use. It looks like it will survive for years.

I like the buttons too. Lovely cardigan. My fuchsia was dug up by the builders next door. I replanted it and it was ok then I accidentally dug it up. I put it in again and I think it is surviving. It is a very tough plant-I originally moved it from our last garden in a very frosty January. I hope it looks like yours one day!

Love the cardigan, and the buttons, in and of themselves, are splendid!
