Lockdown in East Africa has been much the same as for the rest of the world, so our sister guild has not been able to meet together to knit. Worse yet, they have not had access to the market to buy yarn which is in short supply even in good times. But, undaunted as knitters tend to be, they’ve still been busy knitting up their stash, falling in love with circular needles, and discovering cables.
