Far from where I am in Canada, across the Atlantic ocean, in the country of Wales, lives a lovely lady that I am lucky enough to call my Nan.
This week she celebrated her 82nd birthday.
I wished so much that I could be there. I wanted to let her know I was thinking of her. But... what the heck do you get an 82 year old woman for her birthday??
I decided to make her a knitted broach. It was quick and small enough to post in time.
So using some scrap yarn I made a little flower following a Debbie Bliss pattern.
but, I wasn't totally happy with it, so I made another.
Pattern: Floral Corsage
Source: Debbie Bliss' The Knitter's Year
Yarn: Scrap pieces of worsted weight
Needles: 3.75mm & 4.5mm (US 5 & 7) straights
Time: about an hour each
Soon it was whizzing it's way off to Wales. Happily it arrived on time and was apparently part of a lovely day where my favourite person in the world was rightfully spoiled by her friends and family.
Happy Birthday Nan xxx
