It all began at the Guild

Late last year I joined the NSW Knitter’s Guild. When I attend (which is highly intermittent due to teaching and family commitments), I have a great time, and at my first meeting I purchased some 3 skeins of Silkbloom Fino from Suzy Hausfrau.

I found Delynn after searching around Ravelry. When I turned up to the show preview, I ran into Margarita and Lynn, who completely surprised me by telling me that I had won a prize! I will admit to enjoying the sensation – future show entries are likely.

  1. Such a great choice – love both the pattern and the colour and the yarn drapes beautifully. And I think it’s going to be very wearable. Congratulations!

  2. Congrats! I won second place in a county fair way back in the 1980s. Still have the ribbon. I love Fino. Just bought 2 skeins in the steel gray color.
