Sonya’s friend , Rosemary, was over to visit from New Zealand. She has visited us before and it is always good to welcome someone new to the group because they bring in their ideas and knowledge. Rosemary didn’t disappoint. She enjoyed seeing what we were doing which fed her creativity but she had brought along things which we loved. The Kaarlund yarns she was using for the warm woollen shawl for her daughter were lovely colours and it felt so soft. Then there were the packets of stitch markers her daughter made from single silver earrings. They all looked so interesting and it is a great way to upcycle those single earrings!! There are some nice shawl and other patterns on Linda’s Knitwear Designs .
