Say it with flowers

Beautiful Botanical Knits: 40 Exquisite Knitted Flowers, 6 Beautiful Projects

I was lucky to be given a copy of this book yesterday - Beautiful Botanical Knits by Nora J Bellows.  Here are some the the projects and knits from the book.  Not normally one for fiddly knitting, I was surprised how many of these flowers I may be tempted to knit.




  1. Wow, that book looks like a load of fun! I love the daffodils especially. The sunflowers don't look too difficult, that may be a good place to start.

  2. Funny, though I hate silk flowers, I find these knitted ones actually quite tempting! after knitting a few breed specific dogs recently, it seems like another realistic step in knitting! not sure if I should thank you for drawing my attention to yet another thing I would love to do...:)

  3. Gosh, they are really pretty, It took me a few moments to realise that cover was even knitted!

  4. What a wonderful book! I want one! My book wish list is forever growing even though there is no room for them and I am trying to reduce clutter by selling my least used current ones.
