If these fall-themed flowers don't get you in the mood for my favorite season, then I give up.
Last weekend, I plonked myself down in my comfy craft room chair, added a bunch of podcasts to my YouTube playlist, and crocheted 15 flowers for a custom order I received in my etsy shop. I'm pretty sure it was a weekend well spent (any day I don't have to leave the house and can just surround myself in yarn = success).
The pattern is based off the Leona Flower, which I've tweaked a little bit over the years. I love crocheting them (they're so fast) and I enjoyed being able to play with "different" colors. It's not often that someone requests a rosette in orange, brown, or even variegated shades. And the fact that fall is the best season ever made the autumnal theme even more fun to execute ;)
I used every yarn from Caron Simply Soft to I Love This Yarn. A few yarns are unidentified, though I know the orange is a Mary Maxim - I just forget which line. They range in sizes due to using some DK weights vs worsted weights, but I think the variations make it more of a party, don't you?
Hope you're all having a great week! I'm getting my hair done tonight and may or may not be blonde the next time I "see" you. Only time will tell *maniacal laughter*
PS: What are some of your favorite knitting and crochet podcasts? I'm looking for new ones to add to my list. Please let me know in the comments :)
