Flowers for my mother-in-law

I was wondering what to make my mother-in-law for her birthday, when the Lion Brand Yarn newsletter popped into my inbox, containing this pattern for amigurumi flowers, which I thought would be just the thing.

I made mine with remnants of Debbie Bliss cashmerino chunky, and made 24 flowers instead of the 18 the pattern called for, and I left out the leaves as well. I think it’s pretty cute, and it was lovely and quick to make.

    Wow, they are fabulous. I made my m-i-l a ruffled scarf for her birthday next week. I was pleased at how it turned out but it’s nothing like as gorgeous as your flowers.

    I’ve just run through your blog and enjoyed it immensely. You are quite a humorous writer. And I must remember to check back when I’m selecting my next book to read (you either read must faster than me or have much more time.)

    […] did not turn out as good as I thought it to be. I first saw it here, her flowers & pot are so nice & tidy. The position of my flowers looks quite messed up. […]
