My heart belongs to Alice and the Beanie Festival

There were so many members at the Guild Knit N Natter on Saturday that we ran out of raffle tickets. What a great turn out! Everyone seems very happy with the website and I am unashamedly recruiting followers!

I was reminded that Eric and Wendy are off to the Alice Springs Beanie Festival.

I lived in Alice for 6 years, my children were born there. I love the red ochre of the desert. It is my heart’s home. I won’t be going this year, but I will definitely be saving my pennies to go next year.

As Guild members, we have made and donated beanies for people who need them in Alice and surrounding communities. Most Guild members are so modest that they just do it without expecting acknowledgement, but I am proud of our efforts. Go us! It has also prompted me to go on a beanie making spree… this winter’s colour is white! The pattern is called Fern Glade.
