Yarn Along - flower explosion

Joining in with Ginny and the Yarn Along!

 In preparation for next weeks camping trip I dug out an old project. I plan on working on my milk sweater while camping, but as this is a pattern I need to pay attention to and there is definitely going to be drinking and too much sun. Not a great combo. I wanted a easy evening project for around camp. I started this several years ago, using up my bits and bobs of yarn. I paid little attention to yarn weight figuring I could even it out at assembly. I plan on making 100 flowers then crocheting them together with green yarn to have a flower garden afghan. I have misplaced the pattern! But the internet was good and I found it again - here! I have 58 done so far. When I was working on them before, I did not tuck my tails. I spent a few hours this week and got them taken care of. Behold the yarn shrapnel   
As for reading I am re-reading Up Close and Dangerous by Linda Howard. I really like her characters.

  1. What a fun and beautiful project to do on your trip. I always thought a scarf made out of flowers would look good too. :-D

  2. I made several attempt of making motif blankets,I would make all the necessary piece, but would never put them together :) But you are right, it is a great on-the-go project!
