Pictures of my knitted bunch of giant flowers.

I haven't been knitting long but I love knitting flowers.

I'm experimenting at the moment but I want people's opinions of my creation I have just finished.
The pictures are from different angles, please excuse my terrible sewing skills in the picture of the underneath.

I have done this but not sure what to make as the "stem". I was thinking tubing with ribbon. What do you think?

Who do you think would like this kind of thing?

Please be gentle, I know it's only very basic.

TIA. smile

They are fantastic, love the colours.
What yarn are they knitted in?

The brown and green are Sirdar click. The white and pink are just oddments of wool blends I had in my bag.
They are all very soft and lovely to knit with.

Thank you btw smile

They're lovely. I can't judge the size from the photos, but would a drinking straw inserted in a knitted tube do as a stem?

A straw would be too thin, when I hold them the flowers cover my hand and the stem is quite substantial.
Where can I buy pretty tubes from? I was thinking the width half the size of a loo roll tube.

Sorry should have said, it's dk yarn in colours blue spruce and cobble. The pink is fudge I think.
