Practising flowers

Hello everyone, I must admit, I have not done a lot of work done this week, however my greatest joy was to receive a book I ordered from Amazon about 6 weeks ago, and it finally arrived. Lesley Stanfield's "100 flowers to knit & crochet", an excellent book indeed.

My very first attempt to make a daffodil and here is the result.

And still practising some of the other flowers, the two flower broach is very popular at work, I made yet one more for a colleague's birthday.

And some smaller version of these flowers in multi coloured thread.

Wishing you all a very good week ahead, and thanks for visiting my blog.

I have been drooling over that book as I am teaching myself crocheting. I really like your flowers!

You asked about the wool I use. For socks I have been lucky to get some Wollmeise sock yarn from Germany. It is very hard to get as the lady who dyes it cannot produce enough yarn to meet the demand. You can try at http://www.rohrspatzundwollmeise.de but be warned - the yarn that comes to the shop once a week is usually gone in under 5 minutes!

Tare bune sunt cartile astea ! cand am venit in America habar nu aveam de crosetat...si am invatat singura tot dintr-o carte de genul asta ; si uite ca si tu poti!:)
Te pup si sa ai o saptamana buna!
