Of course it is now Spring and my garden for one is in screaming color. I have pleaded with the kids to not pick any of the flowers but this means I too must resist. Yet, I can not help but to acknowledge how lovely some of the Narcissus and Tulips would look on the dinning room table, but then they don't last as long once they've been cut ... what to do?
A few days ago I read this article via a Facebook friend and that very day this arrived in the mail:
The first time I had ever read (on a knit blog) of someone knitting flowers was several years back, Cookie A and her close knitting group were knitting a bouquet of Calla Lillies for a friend's wedding. At the time I remember thinking, "How lovely and special," and thought I might try knitting some flowers, too. Great intentions and all that...
With this book and the many, many flowers, projects and instructions I do believe I will be knitting myself some flower bouquets in the future. But first I have to start my moving list, move, find a new house and settle into it. This move represents so much to me and I can't wait to begin this new journey. I think flowers will certainly be in order!
