So, how does your garden grow?

In a perfect world, mine would be all knitted flowers like my latest blanket/shawl pattern:

Mary, Mary ... quite contrary blanket/shawl

Mary, Mary … quite contrary blanket/shawl

Mary, Mary is similar to my Miss Ellie’s Garden … this one is done in cotton (Knit Picks’ Shine Worsted … a dream to knit and touch!), in brighter colors, with all the knitting work done in the round and blocking out larger (66-inches). The colors in this one really make me smile … the bright “Cosmopolitan” and the limey-“Citrine” go together so nicely that I couldn’t resist having them together again at the end.

So … how DOES your garden grow?

For your enjoyment, here are some other angles on this one (available for download on Ravelry and Craftsy):
