Last week I had a lovely cozy afternoon with a friend. She was interested in learning how to make crochet flowers and so that's what we did!
I made a pot of fresh mint tea, got out the biscotti and we dived into my stash! That was a scary moment, how on earth did I end up with soooo much yarn?
We decided to go the intuitive path and not count the stitches too much so you can see that our flowers are not exactly perfect. But we did cover the names of the stitches and got through the basics:
half double crochet
That's quite a lot for only a couple of hours work. My flower is the orange one and the pinky peach one my friend made is now proudly attached to her phone, it's a handy screen wipe!
