April is Daffodils time

I hope you’ll forgive me to interrupt Janice’s interesting posts about testing and designing for this little personal message…

April is a special month to me. Last year, April brought sorrow. And one of the things that was striking me then was that all daffodils were in bloom. For those of you who are not familiar with the UK in spring, you must imagine blankets of daffodils in bloom on every grassy spot. Everywhere. Everywhere you look, you can see bright and delicate golden shades of daffodils.

And now, it is daffodils time again, and I can’t believe we are approaching the first birthday of my little star.

Last September, I released a sock design in his memory: Petit Prince and Little Star. This month, I would like to bring attention to these one-of-a-kind fraternal socks.

    I will gladly knit these beautiful socks this month in honour of your Little Star. Sending you hugs from across the pond.xx
    P.S. I miss seeing daffodils. Here we have beautiful azaleas but not many daffodils..

      Aww thank you Gillian. Yes, azaleas are pretty, but I can understand why you would miss these little fields of daffodils everywhere. And year after year, they grow more numerous.

    Aurelie, how can I make a donation for your little star, as the pattern has already been in my library some time.
