My Creative Space

Today I have been multi-tasking...
A bit of knitting

A bit of crochet

A bit of French knitting

A bit of inspiration, a bit of imagination and a bit of a combination.
And here is the result.

I had a request for two long stemmed white roses. Since none of patterns matched exactly what I was after I improvised. Knitted the base of the bud. Crocheted the main part of the flower. And since the stem needed to stand tall I used a little French knitting dolly and reinforced the stem with a bamboo skewer through the middle.

Just beautiful. And very practical - I love flowers that you don't need to keep watered! You should do a tutorial on how to make these sometime.

They're beautiful! I love the fact that you used 3 different methods to make them! Clever!

Wow – that’s really going the extra mile to use all of those skills to make those beautiful roses. I am sure they will be treasured.
