Flowers to keep me warm.....

Yes, it is true. This winter, I will have purple flowers to keep me warm with this Japanese double flower scarf...


Someone had asked me to help her figure out a pattern. It is using a diagram instead of a written crochet pattern. I tested the flower with some yarn I had. I found I had to use one color since I did not have much of this thickness laying around. They are larger than the original flowers should be since I did use a thicker yarn. But what to do with two or three test flowers??? Why make a scarf for the upcoming winter of course. To add interest since these flowers are large, I sewed a glass bead in the middle of each flower.

The only problem this winter is going to be how to choose which of my new scarves to wear. *grins*

Maybe you should give each shawl a day... like my daughter has socks with the days of the week on them... Or if you have more then 7, you should number them 1-31 ;-0

I imagine that the beautiful colour will brighten the gloomiest winter day.

The good news is, you won't be bugging me to make anymore scarves for you. You have soooo many now.
This one came out very nice. Once again, that head lady is showing it, not you. Oh well, at least you did it once.
Good job once again.
Love Mom

You and your crochet hook are creating the most amazing beautiful things!

I know what you mean about Ikea. I think if it was closer to me then I wouldn't get there as often but since it's so far away it's a full day outing and we have so much fun. We have to really think about our purchases bz they're too far away to just run back to and return stuff too! I love them and especially love their things for sewing organization.

Thanks for stopping by! I bet you can't wait to use that scarf!

Christine said...

Its lovely. Perhaps you could have a different scarf fo every day of the week. Of course then you'd have to choose which would be your Sunday best scarf...

Marsha said...
