Happy Mother's Day

Here in the UK it is mother's day today.....it has always been the 4th Sunday in Lent so can move around the calendar! So I called my mum to wish her a happy mother's day and I will take her gift when I go to visit later this week! I know she will like it, because she has already seen them in progress!

I mean, who wouldn't love knitted daffodils!




The pattern is my friend Louise's first and is available for free over on her blog - I think it's pretty impressive. Knitted using Lopi roving, sewn together and then felted in the washing machine, before threading wire through the stems to make them stand upright, find a nice vase and voila!
