The last fruits of summer

Look what my mum made and sent for the wee girl - the last ripe cherries of summer.

They go beautifully with her basket of vegetables (a gift found last year under the Christmas tree)

I wonder if I smile sweetly I could talk her into knitting a few asparagus stalks too?

Pattern for the cherries, from this book

A sweet smile might do it, daughter! One, perhaps, like the one on your big girl's face has she models your "hippie" scarf. You'll have to email me the recipe. themother
