During Christmas I found this pretty cashmere cowl at a ridiculously low price. I needed a gift for a friend and decided to add a knitted flower pin to it.
Our local yarn store is carrying a line of wool which includes tiny little skeins of yarn. Perfect for making flowers. It was fun and rewarding to see a small bouquet come together.
I used this book and would highly recommend it. It allows you to use whatever yarn you have on hand and not only gives instructions for flowers, but for some fruits and veggies as well. I'm going to give it to her today, I do hope she likes it!
