I've finally started and finished a knitted item! I'm working on a neck warmer for Derek, but it's slow going between all my other projects. Then, while I was perusing my favorite blogs, I came across this tutorial for a knitted flower - Crochet with Raymond: Knitted Rose tutorial and decided to give it a try. Victoria has been asking me to make her a black hat, and I thought that a nice, hot pink rose/flower would be so cute added to it.
So, here it is. The lighting was terrible and I believe it's hard to see all the detail/stitching, but it's not to bad for my first try. It was pretty easy to make since it's only knit stitch for 6 rows. I actually only did 5 rows. Next time, I'll also start with a cast on of about 50 to make a smaller flower.
