Barb, is there a gnome in your home?
My dear friend Kusi came over for breakfast tea and knitting. (Kusi is an amazing knitter who can knit speedily while walking...you should see her work on Ravelry!)
She saw that I was trying to document Barb's lovely sweater... I knit leaves and then stitched them on, adding a couple of pink blooms in alchemy "punk" which is the happiest shade of raspberry ever.
When I was pondering what to add to this nice green garment, I put it on and curled up on the sofa. I tried to imagine that some chilly evening Barb would put it on to go walk the dogs or go out with her hubby, and it would be a fun bright spot to wear... just in case any of the leaves need to be... moved, they would be easy to remove :)
There was a small scuffle over who would be the model, and so in the end, the gnome won.
coming to your home soon, Bev! xo
