One of my earliest memories is of digging in the ground beneath one of my motherʼs fragrant rose bushes. This stranded colorwork mitten depicts an heirloom rose and chain links typical of fences of the 1960ʼs like the one I remember. I hope youʼll find digging your needles into the stitches of these roses as enjoyable as my memory of digging around the roses of my youth.
