Cockscomb: Mother Nature's Knit Flower

Fabric flowers are all the rage in design right now.  You'll see tattered silk wrapped in circles to create a romantic rose necklace or pin.  And now you can now buy adorable felted flowers that are ready to attach anywhere - no skill required!  These felted flowers can brighten up a knit handbag, scarf or pillow. 

As cute as these Feltworks flowers are, my favorite "Felted Flowers" are the ones provided by Mother Nature.  Have you seen cockscomb for sale in your farmer's market?  They are a multi-colored Fall flower that can really give your living room some interesting texture.  Grab a bunch and let the conversation begin.

Lovely colors! I have looked for cockscomb at the markets here, but sadly have not seen it.
