My knitting this week is really small. I have been knitting up leaves and daffodils, to put on our seasonal table. The leaves will be added to our tree which we were given for Christmas. The daffodils are to put in a small vase next to the tree. The daffodils are knitted in pieces and then sewn together, I have made one flower and have knitted a few petals and the trumpet of another. The pattern for the leaves are from this book and using this pattern. The daffodil I am making is loosely based on this pattern.
Sticking with the plant theme my reading this week has been gardening books and my garden journal. I have spent more time in the garden this week as we have had such beautiful spring like sunshine. I have bought seeds and seed potatoes this week and hope the weather continues to be warm so that I can start sewing seeds soon.
