My new favorite cardigan, #Sammal by @jojilocat , I'm totally in love.... knitting this was pure pleasure.
I also love the rustic feel of the yarn I used, and it comes in amazing colors - @tukuwool is perfect match for this pattern!

If you think bryophytes are small, what about sac fungi? Some members of sac fungi are said to be bryophilous, meaning that they grow on bryophytes -sometimes on a very specific part of the bryophyte shoot (micro-niche). An interesting example is Calonectria frullaniae, an ascomycete that only inhabits the reproductive structure (perianth) of a liverwort species Frullania dilatata. Apparently, the fungus exploits the nutrient flow that would normally result in the bryophyte's capsule development.
