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.

latest news from Roses & Rue

We have had a very busy week with classes booking quickly - the Appliqued class is now full and there are only a few places left on the 'Learn to Knit' course. Keep an eye on the website  as there will be plenty more classes to come. Look out for the embroidery classes with Ros of Rosmadme fame, coming very soon. We also have a great sale on at the moment, so pop into the shop to bag a bargain!

 Dont forget to check out Hand Made Monday to see what people over the country have been creating this week. Click on the link http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/

A gift for a friend - pattern taken from 'The GentleArt of Knitting' by Jane Brocket.

The flowers are very easy to make - look out for our tutorial coming soon!



The flower son the tea-cosy look really good, especially the beads in the centre. Glad your classes are going well. Hope you have a good week.

I love the little tea cosy, that is just awesome. Nice to hear about classes, too bad I live so far away. :(

Your profile made opening a shop sound so simple, I'm very jealous. I think classes are a must for a shop, so I would love to sign up.
