More knitted cacti
I must stop now, this is becoming obsessive:(
I promised my daughter-in-law I would knit her a cactus and I have obviously gone mad.
They are still basically different lengths of ribbed tube, gathered up, stuffed with a cardboard base inserted in the bottom of each one and stitched over. The flowers are crocheted in rounds. Fluffy wool made fluffy cacti and also I crocheted on some extra fluff! The Cleistocactus straussii* centre back has knitted flowers rolled up into tubes. (*I know this name because we have a cactus nursery!! I could give them all Latin names lol)
They are all now stuffed into in clay pots.
