I'm in a hurried discussion with my publisher about what to call a particular project in my upcoming book. I'm popping back in today to pose a question to all of you and I'm hoping you can help Michelle (the publisher) and me.
The said project will be in my new book about sunflowers that you can knit and crochet. One of the projects is a sunflower made into a decoration for your clothing. I called it a brooch but Michelle isn't sure Americans are comfortable with the term. I guess I have also called it a pin because now I have her totally confused. For me, the terms are interchangeable but we aren't sure that this is true with the majority if brooch/pin wearing women.
The brooch?/pin? is similar but quite different too from this one from my Zinnias and Sunflower Pattern.....
And this brooch?/pin? from Olympia's Felted Flowers Pattern.....
So what do you call adornments such as this?
One lucky reader will receive 2 balls of my new Color By Kristin Yarn which they can use to make brooches or pins for holiday gift giving.
Find the patterns on my website here or on Ravelry (you'll have to search for them because the links that they give me are not working!). They are great little quick knits.
Michelle (who works for the publisher) and I thank you! Leave your answer in the comments section and make sure you leave an easy way to get a hold of you so that if you win, I can send you the yarn! Contest ends Friday evening October 5th at 11:59 p.m.
