SPRING and LEAVES OF GRASS







my beautiful spring flower beds are not to be this year
the pictures above are the only spring flowers that have survived the last 5 snow storms,
[ last week's being the worst for flowers].
i did however with all our cold weather finished Leaves of Grass.
this was the most challenging knit i have ever done,
also the most satisfying! i love it ! I used an aran weight yarn so i have a beautiful pi bed spread.
if i knit it in a fingering weight yarn or a lace weight i would have a shawl to wear around town,
perhaps the next time i knit this pattern.
