January Social round-up

All this cold and crisp weather is almost making our Norwegian members homesick! Our February meeting will warm you up! Speaking of warm, the January meeting was lovely, informative and hopefully resulted in some woolen creations. January’s coffee and cake meeting had a different activity with a focus on knitting and crochet. WNS member Dr Torunn Kjølberg delivered an interesting talk about Norwegian knitting culture and history, and we had a live demonstration on how wool yarn is spun by Gillian Thomas.
