    I must get over my fear of button bands because your sweater fits you beautifully!!

    I’m currently knitting Lush again! The second for my granddaughter who has outgrown the one I made her last year. I’ve also just finished one for a granddaughter on the way. She is due in 12 weeks and they’re my first matching knits for them, though they’ll be cousins not sisters.

    Yay, very happy to see more of Lush. I have bought the wool to knit myself a Lush and my hubby and kids will present it to me for my birthday in a month, near the end of our Australian autumn. I’m hoping to make good knitting progress over winter and be able to wear it lots in our late winter and spring. Hopefully my 8 year old daughter will like the pattern and want a matchy knit too. There can’t be all that many more years until the thought of owning the same piece of clothing as Mum will go out of favour for a while ;-) .

    I’m also desperate for some sunshine. I’m not knitting lace but I have moved onto a very springish (I know, not a real word) pink called Sweet Pea.
    Your cardigans look so pretty!

    I love your knitting. What pattern are you using? The speckled yarn looks delicious in that lace.

    I love the lush cardigan, I need to make a bigger one for my daughter. I’m also planning lace socks for me in either peach or green from the wys florist range.

    Downunder we’re breaking heat records for autumn; but, typically for Victoria, they cover the teperature spectrum in the course of any day. A pox on climate change !
    I love Neve’s dimple ! – and your matchiing cardis are a delight. :)
