Knits in Action- Cascade

After the much heated button debate back in May, I finally decided on the proper finishing touch for Elise's Cascade.   Now that the air has brought back the beloved fall chill, handknits have been back in season for the Bernardi clan.

This past weekend, at our town's Heritage Day, it seemed like the perfect outing for Elise to don her newly fitting handknit cardi.


Our little animal lover couldn't get enough of the goats, bunnies, and horses that we met along the way.












I just couldn't get enough of    Elise in her sweater!


And to top it all off, I got to share with Elise my (very limited) knowledge on weaving- not a bad day at all.


(for all you yellow button fans- did I win you over with the brown?  Or are you still hoping I switch them out?)

  6. What a cutie-patootie! Darling child + adorable handknit sweater = too sweet for words -- good thing there's pictures. When DiscoDame was a tiny tot, she thought the mules were big bunnies, and always wanted to pet their ears! Nothing quite as heart-stopping as seeing your teeny gurl trying to grab a cranky mule's ear....
