I designed these scarves in memory of my amazing mother. She loved Gardening and Roses. This Rose Garden is for her, for the inspiration she had and continues to impress on my life.
I only use High Quality Pure Fibres in this Design and always high quality yarns so you can wear them for years to come.
All my designs are hand knit and crocheted with great care and durability and can be worn for many years to come. To preserve the yarn and longitivity of wear the design must be hand washed and laid flat to dry.

Happy New Years! To celebrate a New Year I began working on a new design the first week of January. The goal was to make a larger piece that could be both a shawl and a sculptural scarf.
