Yarn embroidery

Wanted to try my hand at embroidering flowers on knits.... Based VERY loosely on the beautiful kalocsa embroidery I so admire. My circles aren't perfectly circular, my leaves are a bit uneven, but the heart turned out pretty good. :) I love the look of the folklore flowers on the plain grey mittens, imperfections and all. Now on to mitten #2... and then perhaps a photo session with oldest daughter for the final results?

  3. The imperfection of the embroidery makes the gloves nicer.
    I really like it.

  4. Beautiful! The colors and pattern you chose are just lovely!

  5. So gorgeous! I have always wanted to try embroidery over knitting.
