Way back when, before I discovered blogging, I knitted some strawberries.
There are numerous free patterns out there for Strawberries - both knitted and crocheted.
Every summer the strawberries are brought out and used as a seasonal decoration.
But this year I had an idea. They were starting to look a little tired and boring - so I decided to jazz them up.
I crocheted some white strawberry flowers.
Added some green embroidery.
And then crocheted a lovely long chain, attaching a strawberry and a flower alternately along the way.
I now have a jolly garland - and a new lease of life for the strawberries. Bring on the summer sun (oh, I think I missed it - it's raining today!)
