Sadly I cannot go to Skipton in person so I will send a small (or big - I can't stop making them) floral delegation to Yarndale.
I picked some colorful acrylics from my stash...
Aaand here's the result of today's work:
I will need to make some additional flowers to achieve the required size. And maybe just a couple more...
I have a hard time following patterns from Lesley Standfeld's "100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet". The book itself is absolutely brilliant, the translation however, is not! Only thing that saves me from total frustration is the fact that patterns are charted. Craft-related books should be translated by crafters only!
And now for something completely different: meet Tiny Tina! Our new pet! She's so shy! :3
Have a lovely afternoon!
PS. It's such a relief to see cloudy skies again after almost two weeks of hellish temperatures, isn't it?
