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.
I’ve been taking part in 100 Happy Days on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and just wanted to give a run down of the first 25 days…oops, going through them I realise now that I double posted on Day 8 and Day 12. So this is actually the first 27 days!
My good friend asked me to knit some flowers for her wedding favours/place settings for her wedding, which was last Saturday. So, I can finally show you what I made. Now, because there are loads and loads of them, I’ll just stick a few ones on here and if anyone wants to see the full lot you can have a look on my Ravelry.
