Knitting up a garden of flowers

Looking for a quick way to add something different to a plain sweater or piece of jewelry? In Nicky Epstein's new book, Knitted Flowers, she includes patterns for dozens of flowers to add to virtually any piece of clothing, accessory, or even as a decorative element in your home. We suggest pinning these flowers to the neckline of a t-shirt or tank top in the summer, so you can keep cool while you keep knitting!

Want to try something even more edgy for this season? Go to your local craft store and buy French ear wires and yarn, then use Nicky's pattern to create two small flowers. Slide each flower onto an ear wire until they are securely in place to create your own pair of original earrings!

Don't forget to order Nicky's book so you can learn how to create all of these wonderful designs yourself.  We know you'll agree that this item is a must-have for this season.
