Because I have a sick child today, and because I’m awaiting a time to go and purchase more colours for hats I’ve decided to concentrate on making the flowers today (while I pray for the rain to stay away so the washing dries).
Every time I start a new flower pattern I think . . . hmmm, this will never end up looking like the picture; but I keep knitting, faithfully following the pattern and, voila, there’s the flower from the picture. I just love these little snowdrops. They’re so delicate and fresh looking. I especially love them against this dusky purple too.
This little flower was a bit of a challenge as it was created on the dreaded double pointed needles. Still, I got there in the end and, despite the few mistakes, I’m quite happy with it.
And all the while I was knitting this poppy I was certain it would be a disaster but it’s turned out to be one of my favourites.
My next project is going to be carnations. I don’t particularly like carnations as flowers but I have a feeling they’ll look pretty good on a wee hat. I’ll let you know!
