3721  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Knitted leaf wreath on: May 07, 2010 09:29:27 AM
Well, given that I've gifted my mother with a plethora of dish cloths for her birthday, Valentine's and Easter, I knew I had to come up with something else for Mother's Day.   After perusing Ravelry for inspiration (she bought me some yarn and I wanted to use some of it), I came across this pattern for a knitted wreath.

I started out with a varigated yarn, so when it started going more red than purple, I decided to go with only seven leaves, instead of nine, but I think it turned out pretty cute.  It's small - 5-6 inches across, but it'll fit perfectly on a small wall.  I might do a larger one (with bigger leaves) for Christmas, in green with red beads.




Comments and criticism welcome!

I'm so happy you like everything, morrigan!  Cheesy  Sorry the Reese's didn't make it.  Boo. 

dreadlocklove - the plant markers are curled thick gauge wire with shrinky dink markers hanging on them.  Plus some cute little beads because they looked a bit boring without colors.

Tanza - what a beautiful package! I adore the wall hanging and the eskignome!

Awesome work, OGD!

Deb, the other Secret Santa one is really different - required number of items, a single partner, etc.  Sounds fun, but I'd LOVE to do ours again!  I like the wish list aspect.  Cheesy

Thanks pops, for bring so understanding with my (what feels late to me) sending. I won't need an operation and the tests came back all clear, but still the pain :s I guess I will have to crochet it away Smiley I should send by Wednesday Smiley

Yay for no operation and clear tests!  Boo on the pain, though. Sad  I hope it stops soon!

In crafty news, I got the three things I needed to make dreadlocklove's "small" today!  I plan on working on it tomorrow as I took a mental health day!  What's more pro-mental health than crafting?

Cheesy
