Hello and happy Friday!
I have something new and exciting to share with you today. I have been working away on this for many months now and I am so happy to be able to show you these designs today.
When we starting putting the plans in place for our big move last year I knew I would have some time in South Africa and was determined to get to see my wonderful friend Sally-Jane Cameron who lives on the west coast near Cape Town.
We chatted about my visit and decided it would be good fun to celebrate our friendship and my visit with a yarny collaboration. Friendship Across the Oceans was born…..
Friendship Across the Oceans
Knitting, yarn and friendship are the ties that bind so many of us together. Many in the knitting community would count amongst their closest friends people who they might have only met once or twice, or sometimes they have never actually met at all. Yet the love of a craft has drawn us together even though geographical oceans separate us. Clare and Sally-Jane’s friendship is one like this. They have been lucky enough to snatch a few moments of time together in person, when their paths have crossed over the years they have know each other, but most of the time they have been many miles apart.
The journey of life has meant their paths have led them to places that they might never have imagined when they first met. They both currently live next to an ocean, a place where they each find peace in amongst the daily chaos. Their connection continues to grow through knitting, their stories and life experiences.
Thanks to technology and social media, they can skip messages of friendship across the world like stones across the ocean. These friendly waves across the ocean can help carry them through tough times and celebrate the good times together with smiles and laughter.
This mini collection is a celebration of their friendship and knitting journeys……
