Crocheted Flowers

These are flowers that I crochet for my daughter. Only the big light pink one is for myself. My daughter and I have long hair so hair accessories are necessary for us. I'd like to use leftover yarn to make them become beautiful hair accessories. Though these are small objects, they are like my other big knitting or crochet objects that make me feel so happy to wear them. But my daughter seemed not to like them much. She only used them one or two times, then perserving them in the drawer.

Catch up

It didn't take me much time to reknit the rib rim that I ripped out. Finally front and back pieces were done. Then it is time to sew them and finish the V neck and arm edges. It would be off the needles soon!

Rip Out

I've finished the front and back pieces of this blue vest. But finally my teacher told me that I made a big mistake. I shouldn't start the rib rim with waste yarn.The real way is to cast on with waste yarn, knitting stockinette st. and then rip out waste yarn to knit rib rim. Even though my teacher tried to sew the wrong rib part, it still looked one stitch different and weird. So finally she said I'd better to cut the rib rim and knit it again. It seemed that I had no choice. She helped cut the rib part and I reknit it. Since it would be given to my best friend before Oct.5, there's not much time left. So I have to try my best to catch up where it was ripped out.
