Knitted Flower Project
So here are my finished flowers for The Knitted Flower Project. I made them all out of my scrap bag of cotton yarn ( Peaches N Creme, Sugar N Creme, Lion Cotton etc) mostly leftovers from various dishcloth projects. I did notice in a few of the pictures that had been posted that the flowers were kinda floppy like and I wanted mine to be more structured and shaped. So I used size 4 needles (metal yeah really) as I am a tight knitter to begin with ( I almost always have to go up a needle size to achieve gauge) I created a very stiff fabric that stands up. The orange/yellow, yellow white/green, pink/white center were created because I ran out of the little bit I was using and added another piece. I think my favorite is the yellow, white and green. I like the green where it would attach to a stem. I have to stop by Mara's this week to pick up a package of coffee to complete my valentine's day swap which is supposed to be mailed out by Thursday, so I will mail out my flowers at the same time.
