Fork Flowers


HOW TO MAKE FORK FLOWERS
These little flowers come in handy to decorate small items or when you need a pom-pom to match your yarn.
Years ago my children spent many a creative hour making colorful fork-flower necklaces.
You will need a fork with four tines or prongs. You can use a metal or plastic fork. When using a plastic fork, do not pull the yarn too tightly as this will bend the tines of the fork resulting in a smaller flower.
To make the flowers:
Cut a 7-inch piece of yarn and place between the center two prongs of the fork. Hold with left thumb and index finger. This is the tying strand.
Using yarn directly from the skein slip the end of the yarn under your thumb to hold for the first few rows. Bring yarn up through center prong then weave back and forth over and under the prongs. Continue to weave pushing yarn down tightly until the entire fork is filled. Holding the weaving in place with you left hand cut the yarn.
Have someone bring both ends of the tying strand up to the top of fork and tie a knot. Now slip the yarn off of the fork while the knot tight is pulled tighter. With a little practice you may be able to do this by
yourself. Tie a second knot to hold. I have found that by dampening the tying strand, it will hold the first knot more securely until the second knot is tied.
Fluff up the result and you have a small flower. Clip the loops and trim for a pom-pom. To make a two-toned flower or pom-pom use two strands of contrasting yarn together when weaving.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
