Sometimes, when I'm knitting big projects, I need a little instant gratification. I currently have a coat, a cardi and a pair of socks on the needles so I went looking for something I could complete in a day. Something that would cheer me up. Like a flower. I came across this pattern called Flora by Kate Kuckro.
I didn't want a scarf so I just knit up the flower, using leftover sock yarns, put a polymer clay button in the centre which I attached to a piece of felt, then sewed on a brooch pin. It makes a beautiful splash on my winter coat and the entire project was pure enjoyment.
~~I got the button from Tina who lives in Tofino, here on Vancouver Island. Check out her Artfire store ~ gorgeous stuff.~~
