I started off with a bunch of yarn in my stash and I liked how it all looked together.     
I knit some leaves and appliqued them on.     
  Rather than weaving all of the loose ends in, I decided to braid them for a fringe.  I especially like the picot edge cast-off on the top end.

So pretty!  I'm envious of people who can make nice things from their leftovers.

The colourcombination is just lovely. And the leaves are really cute, are they difficult to knit?
