Yorkshire Rose


One of my knitting projects during the winter was this beautiful Yorkshire Rose.  As soon as I saw the pattern (which I found on Ravelry), I knew that I had to knit it.

The gorgeous yarn is from baa ram ewe (I love that name!) and the colours have Yorkshire names.  There is a real link between these yarns and home, which makes them very special.  Not only that, but this yarn shop has a Harrogate location, which I long to visit. 

I'm now on their mailing list for emails and I've seen two adverts for a knitter to work for them ~ how I would love a job working in a yarn shop!  Now, there's an idea.......

Did Somebody Mention Spring?

The calendar may suggest that spring has arrived, but the reality here is somewhat different.  We have just had yet another winter storm and it is still snowing!  With strong winds and drifting snow, it is hard work clearing it. 

My photos are not of the greatest quality, but they were taken with my phone, in very poor light conditions due to the weather and not long before dusk.  Anyway, they give you an idea of just what we are coping with as we head into April.  Will spring ever arrive?
