I met two women from Kenya, Tinda and Lucy . They are knitters and they are visiting here in the US. I spent an evening at my friend Sheri’s house with my new friends. They are part of a group of women in Kenya who are learning to grow cotton and spin it into yarn. I was given the gift of 3 skeins of handspun yarn and I will be making a project and sending it back to the women who spun the yarn. Each skein is labeled with the name of the woman that spun the yarn and the tribe they belong to.
It was wonderful to spend the evening with these amazing ladies. They told us stories of living and knitting in Kenya. It sounds like a beautiful place and these women are so friendly and inviting you can’t help but love them right away.
