I'm ashamed to admit that this lovely piece of buttercup warmth lay unfinished and idle for too long as I sulked about it. If you remember I had a few issues with too many stitches and after the eleventy hundredth tantrum over it, I huffily tossed it into the bowels of my knitting basket.
Initially I eyed it off with disdain and happily pulled out other projects as if to say, "Ha, ha, I'm not knitting you again today you villainous lemon yarn!" Then the guilt slowly crept in and I found myself covering over the ever so squishy ball of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino with other yarns so I wouldn't have to look at it.
But finally I mellowed. My bad mood had lifted and I was in the right frame of mind to tackle it again. And just in time as winds have sprung up here to rival Dorothy's Kansas to Oz breeze.
Once I got past the iffy part (absolutely nothing wrong with the pattern...just the knitter!) it was smooth sailing and provided that simple back and forth kind of knitting perfect for hauling out into the Autumn sun whilst the wee babe slept and the bigger babe bounced.
I couldn't have dreamt up a more fitting button for my little flittery butterfly than this gorgeous wooden one from Tangled Yarns (simply the best yarn shop in the world...and they post too!).
Bijou's buttery Kina ravelled here.
(And yes, mon petit poppet has always held her pinky just so as she drinks a cup of tea.)
