Hello there, my name is Sharon and I live in Westcliff on Sea with my two daughters, Rosie Matilda and Rumer Valentine and, when he's home from uni, my son Sydney. I opened my shop Roses & Rue in July 2009 and this has been a long held dream realised. I have recently given up teaching so that I can focus on building the business.
As well as being fanatical about knitting, I love to crochet, sew and generally have a go at all things crafty. Hopefully you will take a little time out now and then to visit the blog and find out whats been going on in my busy world.
Classes are going well so far this year with a great day on Wednesday when we made some appliqued cushions for beginners. Next class is this week - bunting. Dont forget to check out the website to see whats on.
Time for Tea
Knitting for beginners also restarts on Monday 30th. It's been some time since I've had the pins out as I've been doing a lot of crochet, so I decided to make a little cardi for my friend's new grandson Henry. It reminded me how much I used to knit for my children when they were little and how adventurous I was. I would knit anything and feared nothing. These days, for some reason I don't always have the same urge and tend to stick to small projects, like hats, scarves and tea cosies. So, its a bit late to be a New Years resolution but I'm going to try and knit some more adventurous projects this year - time permitting of course!
Henry's cardi - I just need to find the right buttons...
