Never not knitting, or in my case not knitting!
I've knitted many intricate patterns but this one has beaten me. The leaf looks as though it should be in stocking stitch but the pattern has it in garter stitch. I used the substitute wool Deramores suggested but was disappointed. Have decided this needs a lot of concentration, patience, & time.
very helpful not using pattern yet
