Knitting - more flowers

Morning all, it's the start of the weekend for me.  I do have some housework to do but I thought I'd share some more knitted flowers with you before I start.

Remember on Wednesday I showed you a few I had started.   The flower bug has really hit and I am having fun sourcing patterns and knitting up samples.

I have made a few changes along the way but have learnt some new decorative cast off techniques which will come in handy.

The daffodil I love, but it was fiddly to knit.  Each petal is separate so lots of ends to weave in



Bell Vine, I add a stemen, so technically not correct but it looks nicer



this yarn was very splitty

Crazy daisy - I had lots of these little flowers already knitted up, as I use them as embellishments, as I had various sizes I just popped two together added a bead and hey presto, instant flowers.  The beads need to have a gem glued to them to hide the hole, or I need to come up with another solution.  But as I said these are just samples.





Calling it a day for now and getting on with my other knitting. Hope you have a lovely weekend.  The weather is looking awful for tomorrow but Sunday is looking great.  Have fun.....
