Cool Crochet

How sweet are these? No, don't get excited, my crochet skills are still granny square level. I bought them in a shop..they were sooo cheap. I just adore them. I wish they would grow in my garden like this!

Click on the image to enlarge and appreciate them some more.

Silver Belle is still coming along slowly but surely. Cashmere scarf is coming along extremely slowly and I am itching to cast on some other stuff I have come across, but shall wait, sensibly, until after christmas.

Why, oh, why, did I think it would be a good idea to knit presents for people for christmas? Could I not have learned from the yarn harlot, who I see is having a similar panic. You'd think she'd have learned her lesson by now!!!!!

Your flowers are gorgeous! They remind me of the big pinky-mauve anemonies I have in the garden.

Hmmm, Xmas knitting! Tell me about it... It seems that once you get going, you just can't seem to stop: "oh, just one more present for my third-cousin-twice-removed", etc, etc! Sigh.

Those flowers are really effective.

I did Xmas knitting last year, so I'm having a rest this year!

I only have a couple of xmas knits to do but it is still bad!! It's the pressure of finishing them. Next year I am going to start knitting alll sorts of bits and bobs to put away for pressies from january!!!
