Well, this was a bit more fun to knit after the monotony of the project bag. But I found the pattern hard to follow at times in the way it was written. It took me a while to work out how to increase and, as a result, this Clematis is still imperfect. The petals don’t take long to knit, indeed I completed one in church on the day of the Come and Sing Mozart’s Requiem, but the making up is rather tiresome, especially weaving in all those long tails. But I still like this a lot.

What to knit next then? I’d quite like to try out circular knitting, perhaps I can do a snood or a daffodil?
