Sugar on Snow, 1, 2, 3

I am so in love with this pattern from Knitty Fall 06. It's great for kids and adults with a sense of fun. I've made three so far, one for me, one for a 6 yo, and one for a 2 yo. However, I gave mine to my LYS as a display model, so I'm about to start another one for myself, and a second one for another 2 yo using leftover from the first one. This pattern is incredibly fast yet looks very complicated. The longest part is making the leaves and sewing them together.

These were all made using Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed Cotton (the fiber is organic) in tomato, thistle, and shrimp. The leaves/stems were made using Cotoli

Without further ado, here are the pics, presented from large to small:
