President’s Letter January 2020
Dear Machine Knitters,
I hope this newsletter finds you well, and brings you wishes for a happy
new year. It has been such a difficult start to 2020 for so many with
drought, fires and now floods. Countless people and animals have
been badly affected and so much of Australia burnt.
I sincerely hope that things are turning around, with rain starting to fall
across parts of Australia, and some respite from the recent heat
waves. Australia is a land of such extremes and contrasts.
In South Australia this year we are planning a couple of workshops
with Angela McGregor pencilled in for 23rd May in Adelaide and 26th
May in Pt Pirie. Confirmation and details will follow. We are planning
workshops with Diane Chambers in July.
Melrose Camp attendees expressed interest in another camp in October
this year so we have started the organising for that.
May your year be filled with the joy that creativity brings. I’m thinking
‘Keep Calm and Keep Knitting’. I have knitted a pair of very long socks/
stockings for my granddaughter. They were on her Christmas wish list,
and remind me of Pippi Longstocking. I’m hoping I haven’t made them
too tight or its back to the Knitting Machine for another try.
Best wishes for a safe and happy new year
