Okay, so it's not quite a bouquet yet.  I'm knitting flowers for my wedding from the Knitty pattern for calla lilies (http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTlilies.html).  I'm knitting it with 6mm needles and wool and hand felting.

Here is one freshly knitted:

Here is one freshly felted:

Sorry for the links - photobucket is doing something strange...

And here they are side by side:

Those are really neat. Gives me fond memories of watching lillies in the garden on a misty morning travelling in South Africa.

Absolutely beautiful! Calla lilies are my favorite... I'll have to try these someday (although my knitting skills only go as far as a scarf)!

Thanks guys!  I've been informed since I set my heart on these that a) they're toxic and b) they're funeral flowers but I don't care!

Bourtney, they're pretty simple.  So long as you can knit in the round and do yarn overs and SSK you can make them.  I hope you have a go!
