WE might all soon be wishing we'd taken a leaf from Jasminbleu Robertson's book.

We found the clever Wollongbar eight-year-old at a national knitting party at Lismore's Spotlight store.

She'd gone along to learn to knit so she could keep warm this winter.

Since then, the last dregs of the Northern Rivers' endless summer have fled, with temperatures yesterday getting down to 11C at Lismore and reaching a high of only 19C.

The rest of the week's not much better. Today, tomorrow, and Friday have slightly higher temperatures - between 12C and 20C - but at the cost of blue skies.

Saturday will be the pick of days for the coming week, with the rainy weather clearing and a top temperature of 22C (low of 11C), before continuing with sunny but chilly weather through until next Tuesday.
