Aww, I’m sorry!  But at least you know he loves your skill!  It’ll be such a sweet wedding present, and something they can keep with sentimental value!

It’s annoying that he offered up your services without asking you. How many knitted flowers are we talking about?

You could go tell her to buy some… They are at Hobby Lobby for $3.99 for a package of 6… $2.39 with the 40% coupon.  These also occasionally go on sale for 50% off.  They have a lot of different colors.  Just an option out!

I’m jealous that you can make these cute little things!!!

@MLDoddie:  Not to be picky, but those flowers are crocheted.  Crochet is soooooo much quicker than knitting! 

People don’t realize how much time knitting takes.  If FI volunteered me to knit a bunch of flowers in only a few weeks for someone I barely knew, i think i would have flipped!

OP, you are a very sweet women! I hope that bride realizes how lucky she is.

I agree with @Vandykins, you’re so sweet for doing that! I’m sure you’re FI had only good intentions, but I’d be annoyed with him volunteering such a time consuming project, too! Try to remember that he’s probably just proud of your skill and may have been showing off to his friend a little bit :p
