Lotus Flowers

Now that we’re back in the States I have time to knit again. My long term lotus flowers project reached a milestone. I’ve completed knitting the petals and have 149. Next up will be finding a lotus leaf pattern. I may tweak an existing pattern, much like I did with the petals.

Eventually I’ll sew these all together in various groupings and they’ll float on a blue knit afghan. But first I’m working through my knitting stash. The yarn I currently have traveled with me to and back from Taiwan! This lotus project was inspired by the beautiful lotus ponds I frequently saw there.

One thing I missed while overseas was having a full sized oven. I’m back to gluten free baking. The above chocolate chip cherry biscottis were delicious.
