Hand knits and cute buttons

 On the weekend I went to Camberwell Market for the first time, yes I have lived in Melbourne for 6 years now and never been before.  

It was fabulous!  Lots of rummaging and all sorts of people.  I said hello to Catherine from Audrey Scarlett Vintage, who has a stall there and she so wickedly tempted me with a fantastic hand knit cardigan, I love a good hand knit, cropped cardigan.

Look at that detail!

All it needed doing to it was a change of buttons, so today I popped to my local material and haberdashery and hunted down some red buttons - something to brighten up the grey of the wool.

Gaahhh so many to chose from!

I was going to go for the lady birds but decided on some bright red flowers. And so while enjoying a cup of coffee and some m&m's (yes sometimes I separate the colours) I got to work.

Taaa Daaa! All finished and with a hint of colour to brighten up my Autumn and Winter days.


  1. That is an amazing cardigan. I love the the new buttons. I'm looking forward to our local annual rummage sale. It's so much fun.

    1. I do love a good rummage too.
      I tell me 4yo it's just like a treasure hunt - you just don't know what you'll find ^U^ Good luck at your local rummage sale - I hope you find something special. x

    1. Thanks, a good button is as important as a good brooch :)

  3. Fabulous cardi and I love the buttons you added, extra cute! I'm hoping to visit the Camberwell Market when I visit in a couple of weeks. I've heard good things about it.

    (Brown M&Ms are my favourite) :D

    1. Oh yes, you will love Camberwell Market - I saw a few QEII items I thought you might like ;)

      Really, brown? hhhhmmm i wonder what that says about us :)
