“ No ray of sunlight is ever lost, but the green that it wakes needs time to sprout. It is not always granted to the sower to see the harvest. All work that is worth anything is done in faith.”
-Albert Schweitzer

Sprout is beautiful, no surprise. If money were sprouting I'd definitely add it to my collection of patterns that await either me or a yarn purchse but alas, no so. I do however miss the lace weight patterns... lace has stolen my heart!
