FO: Bunch of Roses

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.
