Even though the trees were blossoming, it was still a proper London weather, cold, humid and of cause rainy, to my luck mostly in the evenings.
It was great to spend some time alone and I did some stuff I hadn't done for years, like going to exhibitions, and the ballet, and just hanging out without having to be anywhere, which was good for a change.

Snowdrops have started to pop up from the ground and reminding us of the warmer times ahead.

Fleur followed me closely in the knitting process and was really exited about this one. Every time she saw it, she would mention it was for her. Who can blame her with those colours? Had I had enough yarn, I'd probably ended up making this one for myself instead, but I am happy to see her in it. When I finished and wanted to try it on Fleur to see the fit, she ended up wearing it for several days in a row and refused any other sweater, so it's definitely a hit.
The pattern is self-thought out, but I got inspired for colour mix on Instagram and used some leftover yarn I had acquired, while I was pregnant and still knitted baby size items. I love to knit brioche knit, it is so light and fluffy and has such a nice texture regardless of the material. You might remember it is not my first brioche stitch sweather.
I hope you will be as lucky with the weather this weekend as we are going to be here in Berlin. Have a nice one.

These babies were in water for quite a while. Eventually it looked like all of them would make it, but due to our holiday abroad, only the three with the longest roots made it alive into 2019. Still, I was so happy to come home and find one of them with leaves. I actually don't know if it is possible to transfer them to soil. For the moment they are just brightening up our kitchen with a little touch of spring. And one still hasn't sprouted.
If they grow big, they can only stay with us for a certain amount of time, as my love for planting trees already takes up a fair amount of space in our apartment. I though about bonsai, but we also talked about planting them somewhere in nature or in the city. Let's see what happens.
