“Flowers don't worry about how they're going to bloom. They just open up and turn toward the light and that makes them beautiful.” - Jim Carrey

If you've been following my blog for some time now, you're probably aware that I also contribute to other websites. Initially, I started this blog to share my passion for all things geeky with the world. There are so many incredible things out there that most people aren't even aware of. However, this particular flower knitting patterns post isn't going to cater to the geeky side of things.


I actually wrote it for a client awhile back, but for some reason, it got removed from the schedule. When I went to turn it in…poof it was gone…I've been holding onto it for five months now, but I don't see any reason to keep it to myself any longer. I spent a lot of time writing this article and gathering flower knitting patterns, it would be a waste. So, my loss is your gain.
