New Designs recently added to  Funky Flowers

Knitted summer roses

In collaboration with Shirley Bickley we are designing some beautiful knitted flower arrangements.  Great fun to knit and they look very attractive whether for indoors or outdoors.

No need to water and they do not wilt!  A lovely knit for a gift or treat yourself by knitting one for yourself.  I know I have fallen in love with our first design.

The new LoveKnitting catalogue is out and guess what?  3 of my cushion knitting patterns are featured!  Thank you very much LoveKnitting for photographing my cushions and publishing them in your catalogue.  I had an e-mail from LoveKnitting in November and was asked to send the 3 cushions to them in London where they were doing a photo shoot.  Receiving the catalogue in the post is the first time of seeing the results and the cushions look fab.  I am very pleased.  You can purchase all 3 from http://iknitdesigns.com/   I am also offering a special offer – 2 cushions for the price of £6 instead of £7.20.  Please e-mail me on denny@iknitdesigns.com and let me know which 2 cushions you require and I will then forward them to you.
