A couple of years ago at the Gippsland lakes I saw curious signposts covered in knitting, fence tops crocheted, trees with jumpers on, bicycle racks decorated - it was so colourful, so eclectic, so unusual - just wonderful. I had idea it was a global movement.
I am so delighted to learn that the yarners in Maleny have initiated this event. The only problem is I can sew, but I am a very slow knitter, and even slower at crochet. Maia wants to join in, and I'd love to too.
To learn, we've decided to join the Yarn and Fibre Arts Group that meets at the local library every Thursday morning. Today was our first visit and Maia got started.
Here are some examples from around the world....
|Hugh produced a really lovely length of yarn on this portable spinning wheel.|
|Maia really wants to get a couple of Alpacas. This week has been a great introduction to the kinds of skills she'll need to cultivate to use their wool.|
