I hope you’re having a fab day, no matter what time of day it is! Thank you all so much for the encouragement about my knitting! You’re all just the sweetest and the comments you left made me smile heaps this morning. Because I’m probably going to post about things in between posts about the Knit-Off (because let’s face it… do you really want two weeks of posts showing every laborious row?! Ha!) I’ve popped a SPECIAL link just there on the right, under Raymond’s profile shot, which will show the progress of the Harvey Kimono! I do in fact have an update already, but I’ll show you that tomorrow, as I really wanted to post about the fun thing I made on Sunday!
Do you know what I love about Spring? Apart from the fact that it’s the end of Winter, I just love seeing all of the trees in blossom, the new flowers, the COLOUR that Mother Nature floods the world with at this time of year.
This tree is just spectacular right now….
and it had a little something else growing in it too!
Luscious red apples!
Be honest with me here… is tying crochet apples onto a tree for a photo shoot wierd?
Are these fun? Or are these fun?
I popped over to Lally Lou-Lou on Sunday, and found the BEST pattern! I’ve been getting sick of bunting and cushions and wanted to make something completely different.
And these apples were just perfect! The pattern is HERE by the way! She’s done a stellar job… although I still managed to follow it wrong! I didn’t do enough dc around the edges so my edges DID turn up….
So I remedied it by hand-sewing felt to the bottom which made them a bit flatter!
Do you know what? I love these apples so much I carried them around for two days showing everyone, and they were a total, total hit! Even KB loved them! (remember KB is not the world’s biggest crochet fan so this is high praise indeed!)
So thank you for sharing such a great pattern Louise! You’re a total star!
OK, I’m off to get on with my knitting! Status update tomorrow!
Have a lovely day, hoping many wonderful things happen to all of you,
Lots of LOVE from Alice and Raymond XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
