I had a naff Ch××××××s, so I took a leaf out of purplepixies book and filled my time with a project. It took longer than I thought!
But now its finished I thought I'd show GN knitters before I put it away.

It is beautiful 😍

That's fabulous!
And not late at all, just ready for December and a better Christmas I hope.

Why put it away, it looks terrific! Show it off.

It is beautiful. When you do pack it away make sure you protect it so you can use it next year.

That is absolutely beautiful. If you don’t want to keep it on display, why not start to make one in Spring colours, then another with Summer flowers and an Autumn one too?
I have (cheap from Amazon) door wreaths for the seasons and I think they really cheer up the front door.

That is stunning Namsnanny

That's a great idea Georgesgran smile I might well do that. Ill check out my stash and see what colours go together.

I've used acrylic yarn AreWeThereYet, so I'm hoping moths wont like it, and I've yet to find a box ect to protect it. But maybe one of those vacuum bags would be best?

Thanks Midgey I suppose I could keep it on display a while longer.

lixey yes lets hope. Anyway I wont be the only one. Thanks I'm glad you like it.

Thank you JaneJudge It was actually quite relaxing to make. Well, the assembly not so much. But all craft is fiddly at times.

That's beautiful and clever.

It looks lovely. Well done! Make more if you enjoyed it. Think they’d sell on eBay or Etsy if you fancy making some cash

That is stunning 😍
Is it from a pattern?

Ali23 Tue 10-Jan-23 21:19:41

That is really lovely! I really like the idea of having a wreath for every season.

Millie22 Tue 10-Jan-23 21:31:41

That must have taken quite a while to do.

ixion Tue 10-Jan-23 21:33:19
