Yes that title is correct, I knitted up a bunch of roses! And since it was Valentines Day yesterday (and I didn’t manage to post yesterday) I thought why not post about them today. A good friend asked me to knit some for his wife and how could I refuse, it’s such a pleasure to knit something so sweet!
Be warned this is a picture heavy post, but it’s worth it I promise!
So, I made three dark red roses.
And I made three lighter red roses.
So six roses in total. I added some stems and threaded some gardening wire through them so that they would stand up.
Then I made three light pink rosebuds.
I made three dark pink rosebuds.
I knitted up leaves for all these roses too.
I put them all together.
I added the leaves and created a beautiful bouquet of roses, even if I say so myself.
