Sunflowers from 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet & Felt by Kristin Nicholas

It’s springtime in New York and I couldn’t help but be inspired by the budding flowers outside, so I created a Pinterest page featuring some the beautiful blooms from our books. Oh, you didn’t know that we have a treasure trove of gorgeous floral craft books? Well, now you do. Ever since we published 100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet back in March 2009, which was a smash success, we couldn’t stop giving crafters what they were looking for: flowers and flowers and some cute critters galore! Check out the Pinterest to page to see all the different varieties of flowers, blossoms, vines, leaves, and fruits that you can make from our books.

And speaking of making flowers, Creativebug is currently hosting a giveaway for the book 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet & Felt by Kristin Nicholas on their website. Click on the link to enter to win a copy of the book, 3 skeins of Kristin’s Classic Elite Color by Kristin yarn, and a 3-month subscription to Creativebug. Bonus: You can check out a lovely video of Kristin’s farm and animals, plus her beautifully colorful home. Good luck! And keep checking back on our blog for some free floral knitting patterns in the coming weeks to celebrate the season!

I'm an assistant editor at St. Martin's Press. I caught the crafting bug when I was little and I wouldn't let my parents leave the store without buying me a crafting kit---any crafting kit! I wove baskets, folded origami, made jewelry, and painted glass. I'm an avid, but impatient knitter, so I'm always choosing projects that I can finish over a weekend. I also love to cook and bake. When I'm not working in the office working on craft books, my weekend consists of , well...making something with my hands. I'm usually scouring whatever's fresh at the farmer's market or food co-op, trying out new recipes, and working on my latest craft project.
