For my design I chose to go with crocheting again. I just find crochet so much more flexible than knitting when creating 3-D objects. I will be attempting some knit items for the challenge, though. Don't you worry!
When I garden I REALLY love to add a lot of color. This means growing foods that are not only delicious, but a different color than you would normally see. Last year I picked out the Snap Pea 'Blauwshokkers' or Blue Podded Pea. This variety is an heirloom from Europe that is ornamental with a bluish purple pod and lovely violet and mauve flowers. It was only natural for me to model my crochet pea design after this variety!
Hope you Enjoy!
