Yarn Along: Roses





I crocheted a summer hat for each of my daughters with a rose. This is my first time with crochet roses and I loved making them! I'm making myself a summer hat too and while it will be a little different in design, I plan to put a rose on mine as well.

I re-read Pride and Prejudice this week and thoroughly enjoyed it. It speaks to the heart so well. Now I'm wondering what to read now that I've read all of the Austen novels and most of the Gaskell novels. Time will tell!

I'm sharing this on Small Things and Frontier Dreams.

  2. Love the crochet hat! I would like to make something like this for my mum and aunty for Christmas - we live by the beach so it would be perfect :-) Perhaps you could read Nancy Mitford's novels next - moving a long in time a bit, but still so wonderfully English and full of such quirky and marvellous characters.

    1. I'll have to check out Mitford, thanks so much for the suggestion and thanks for the hat compliment!

  3. I'm listening to North and South through the Craftlit podcast and oh my, I am loving it! I am new to Gaskell and hooked.
    What an adorable hat! The pattern is so sweet, and a little old fashioned without being dated. Precious!

    1. I LOVE North & South. I loved it so much that I read it twice in a row! Gaskell is great. I've read Wives & Daughters, Cranford, Ruth, and Cousin Phyllis by her too. I think North & South is my favorite :-).

    2. Good to know! I was wondering which novel would be a good one to start with. I've never read Gaskell, though I have watched the adaptations (yes, I know....).

    3. I actually like the Branford mini series better than the book... Start with North & south by Gaskell, it's amazing. I also really like Ruth as well as wives and daughters.
