We also had a very special visit from Mariko Senju, the beautiful and very talented world-class violinist! She sat with us for a couple of hours admiring the handiwork and even modelling some of the items! She listened to the stories of the ladies and joined in on all the laughter (even the camera crew were laughing!). It was such a wonderful visit!
Did you know that Nike’s new soccer boots “Magista” and Adidas Samba Primeknit are actually knitted?
Why knitted? ” Well, says Nike, by using such futuristic construction techniques the boot will fit around your feet like a glove, creating a second skin – or sock-like feel – while simultaneously delivering the strength, structure and support needed to play ball.”
Check out these gorgeous blankets! One lady from Yarn Alive has a mother who cannot attend Yarn Alive. However she wanted to crochet these blankets at home for Yarn Alive! Even if you cannot be at a Yarn Alive class in the flesh, keep knitting/crocheting wherever you are and inspire us with your creativity! So what are you waiting for – post your pictures of your latest project and let’s build this online Yarn Alive community!
The Friday class learned how to make the famous Crochet Flowers! Thank you to those who donated beads last week which we were able to use! We are still in need of more pearl beads so if you would like to donate, please visit our Donate page for more details.
