Next Obsession

I've been trying out these Japanese motif flowers using different types of yarn. I do love this motif and how it looks once many flowers are connected. The self-striping yarn with long color runs make especially gorgeous flowers without the pesky problem of changing colors and weaving in ends!

Naturally, when Larry sees a swatch lying around the house, he always picks it up and tries to attach it to his body somewhere. Behold, the Japanese Flower Mask, below!

I'm so glad you included that Larry photo. I was worried that my flowers were coming out too big, but I see that they are the right size. Although, they don't lay flat. It feels like I have too many petals, but I don't. Hmmm....

You are tooooo funny. How have I missed you all this time. New follower here that's for sure. Off to see what else I've missed. Can't wait to start on Suz flowers. But, first I must finish my circles. Hope to see you around the garden.

You are so lucky to have a model on staff! I have to use the teddy bear and he only works for baby items.
The flowers are really beautiful and they are on my list of things to try.

Larry looks like a pink crochet version of the Green Man! Love the scarf he's modeling in the previous pic.

This is my all time favorite photo of Larry. He looks fantastic in pink, but it's his glasses that makes it.
