Possible Flower Project

Here is a possible knit project for spring. I like the embroidered flowers and the 3/4 length sleeves. I am not so sure I would want to knit it from wool though, maybe a cotton blend would work

The pattern is from Knitter's Spring 2005.

Also, here is flower related picture--sort of. This is C.J. my godson, enjoying the blooms.

How are the pillow projects going?

Back to the Flowers

The holidays sidetracked me from everything, including knitting flowers! But I am back with some flower power! First off, for the Knit the Classics KAL, we are reading Mrs. Dalloway, and I am going to finish the Rose Pillow that we talked about long ago! This project fits perfectly with the book, and I wanted to finish it anyway! Also, I am knitting the Nicky Epstein floral purse, like Sushpi, although I am not anywhere near as far as she is! I am using Wool of the Andes. And, I am working on the Color on Color Scarf from the Scarf Styles Book--instead of knitted buttons, I am going to add knitted flowers!
The IK pillow still sits unfinished . . . What's up with that?!
Wishing you bouquets of flowers as we start the New Year!

Floral Felted Bag

I"ve started the Nicky Epstein Floral Felted Bag from IK Fall '04. I'm using Frog Tree Alpaca in sportweight as a sub for the Jamieson's. I like what I've done so far. I've gotten to about row 15 of the chart (out of 57) for the front. I guess I'll figure out the construction of the bag when I get to that point. I'm glad to be knitting it!

Project List

I have some Svale that I can't figure out what to do with. I might get the Dale of Norway Book #153. I noticed that there are several flower projects, plus some patterns for some cut little crocheted and knitted flowers.
