One of my favorite things to do when I was a little girl was French knitting, but the only things I ever made of it were small rugs. There wasn't much more to find than rugs in the small world of children's crafts books. But a while ago I saw French knitted names and I think this looks so much better than rugs! I did something with wire and French knitting before, but didn't think about making names for a second. I love this idea! Perfect for a little baby present for example!
When I saw this one, it was like I was back in Costa Rica right away, although it's quite some years ago that I was there. The green, the flowers, the animals; when I think of paradise and the variety of all creatures that must be living there, I think Costa Rica equals it the most. I couldn't wait to make it and as soon as the craft store opened and I was finally able to buy the supplies needed, I ran out the door. I finished this piece the same day.
