Although I finished the knitting a week ago it takes a week (or more!) to get the last bits done.Weaving in ends, blocking and buttons.
And I had a bit of a choice of buttons as I picked up some lovely ones from a quilting store closing down. There were a few big containers of these button tubes and I spent a good while going over them trying to find ones that would be great to have in the stash.
I settled on these cute ones and I think they are just right.
This really is a great little pattern. Wallaby by tiKKi can be knit in 4, 8 or 10 ply. This is the 10ply and it’s knit on needles smaller than 5mm so it feels really thick and spongey (I’m trying to describe it) rather than loose. It’s just gorgeous.
I knit the smallest size and used Bendigo 10 ply Luxury because I love Bendigo wool and also because it was in the stash. The colour brick is so perfect and the pattern was super easy to knit.
I think I’ll make another one once I’ve finished my big cardigan that I’m doing at the moment because I just love it so much.
Ravelry details are here….oh and I only have 2 buttons on my cardigan because I forgot to do more buttonholes after the first 2.
