WINE BLOSSOMS have arrived

I wanted to send my Secret Pal something special, something nobody else had, something knitted (of course), something that would remind her of the fun she had in the Spring Fling...... so Wine Blossoms were invented:


WINE BLOSSOMS
(Which Wine is Mine)

Wine Blossoms
are a colourful way
to identify wine glasses
during a party.
Each guest gets a uniquely coloured blossom which is
easily removable when they use a new glass


DD and I sat for days working out the logistics - some were too small to fit around the stem of the glass, some were too bulky, some looked like grandma's night-hat, some were too floppy .... but finally we think we hit on a winning pattern. What do you think?
