So I finally crocheted a flower. I'm so excited about it. Who knew that crocheting in the round can be so fun and so incredibly satisfying? Of course, this was my second or third try. The original pattern that I was using called for using double treble stitches, which made the petals a little too elongated, therefore making the flower sort of floppy and mis-shapen. This pattern called for regular treble stitches, which worked much better with the yarn weight I was using.
And to continue this flower theme, I wanted to post some pictures that I snapped this morning before I left for work. I was pulling out of Lyndon's driveway and noticed these beautiful flowers in his front yard flower bed. Of course, for the life of me I can't remember what they are called, but he was so proud when they stared budding, and now look at them!
