About Me

With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Hand Made Scarf

I would like to show off this warm cosy scarf.
It was hand knitted by my Mum, Wil, using alpaca wool.
But that's not all...


The alpaca wool was hand spun by my Dad, John on the spinning wheel that sits in the corner of the lounge room.
What a great team effort hey!


Mark and I make a great team too. He earns money so I can spend it on craft. 
A good arrangement.

 Here is the knitter and spinner. They celebrated their 57th Wedding Anniversary this year.

 

Mum loves knitting but I'd be stretching the truth if I said that Dad loves spinning (even though he is very good at it). He learnt it in his youth, out of necessity I think during the war in Holland. It's a bit like learning to ride a bike, once you know how to do it, you don't forget.  


Lovely scarf Mum and Dad!
