The other garment I committed to make during my self imposed 'August is Buttons' is the Banksia top by Megan Nielsen. Well, I've made a start. The next step is the placket and the buttons, so I'm taking a bit of a break from it now to return to my knitting. I'm using Liberty of London fabric I bought back in April . It feels good to go into the stash. I hope to finish this top next weekend, although we are planning another trip to the snow. This time just for the day (Sunday) and to Mt Selwyn, which we haven't been to before but it is 'family' oriented and heaps cheaper than where we usually go, so it's worth checking out.
