I knitted away – at least 5 rows a day – and it was really growing, I was going to make it – if I remembered to buy buttons….

I tried to find buttons at a number of locations but to no avail so I bought some through Etsy – they didn’t arrive in time but I will post them to my Sister-in-Law  (this week!) to sew on as I have already gifted the bolero – it was so sweet.

I have been distracted with another pattern – I came across the book when I was looking for my copy of Olearia and, as I have been reading The Yarn Harlot a bit lately and watched her progress with the layette, I was a little inspired to do some baby knitting.  A good friend recently had another baby and I had nothing home made to send so I think I need a stash like my dishcloth stash…..
