Flower Power

Saturday is Football Day... and I go to visit Ma (that's my mum to the grandchildren). Well, I took my wool with me, I needed to fiddle today, and I got down to crocheted flowers. Sally-Anne has a thing for flowers. They turned out OK, just a simple chain and then petals around the centre. I got some ideas from a free flower pattern search on tinternet & made my own from there. Anyway, I wanted to use one straight away, so I made a headband, like the ones that were popular in the early 70's and, I have to say, it's not bad. Sally looks cute in it. Quite a success.

The picture is fuzzy, apologies for that, but the idea is there. Sally wants one for all her friends and acquaintances, but only after I knit a scarf for her doll.


  1. Very nice. And I'm sure much faster and less hassle that knitting a flower. I'll be headed to the library or bookstore for a good basic crochet book soon , I think.

  2. Would love to be able to crochet, I think crochet flowers would look fab on some of my goodies, will have to learn!

  3. Sounds like you're going to be busy. I'm really wanting to learn to crochet at the moment. Must have a go. Your flower looks lovely.
