i have been perfecting my crocheting skills by working a couple of different versions of the same flower motif which i found over at messyla's blog.
i did this first one with some leftover cascade sierra from making the mallory loop. it is about 7 inches in diameter.
the second one i worked up with some lion brand fettuccini (recycled t-shirt yarn).
it is huge. 12 inches in diameter. i am thinking that it will make a great trivet.
they are both christmas present too!!
