Roses Abound

No matter how hard I try I just can't stop myself from making
ROSES
They always turn up in my work eventually.
I am drawn to anything with a rose already in the pattern or something that I can adorn with a rose.
They're just so
feminine
I purchased the pattern for this gorgeous cowl
from an etsy shop called the
I crocheted it using Debbie Bliss Fez, which is 85% Extrafine Merino Wool and 15% Camel.
It took 2 balls {100m/50g each}
I love this yarn!
I am going back for more today in a soft shade of purple for a custom order.
While I was in rose~ making~ mode, I got a call from a customer who needed a baby girl gift.
So I whipped up my favorite little knitted umbrella stitch hat that is always so much prettier with a little
rose
The hat is made from
Knit Picks Andean Treasure
100% Baby Alpaca
in
Wild Rose
One skein will make two of these hats.
The rose is a soft, fluffy wool angora blend.
And this big crocheted rose?
Well....
it's for a work in progress...
a Christmas Surprise....
Shhhhhh.....
I will show it when I can ;)
I love the
BIG
FLUFFY
RUFFLY ~ NESS
of
CROCHETED ROSES!
Oh ~
And where roses abound, sometimes a little help is needed.
 Afterall, Santa has his Elves.

    1. Thanks Neicee Dear!
      Yes ~ check it out. The pattern is well worth the price I paid. And thanks for the sweet compliment. Very nice coming from a Crochet Queen like YOU! That's Sophie on the stool, reminding all that she is the reigning Alpha Dog! And of course, one can never have too many Longabergers.

  4. Roses are just the perfect flower. *sigh*
    I love the big one for the secret project! I'm blogging via phone so I don't have a nice big screen to view it on today - it looks brown to me but hubby says it's reddish. I really love the color brown lately. Either way I love it.
    Have a great week!

    2. Thanks Toni!
      The big rose is a kind of brownish burgundy so you and hubby were both right. There will be some brown roses on this project also.
      Have a great week yourself!
