to all who have shared their dream destinations --It has been a fascinating journey. We are all
so different with our impressions, ideas and experiences,
and this is one more way to express our individuality!
Marion's ‘spinning yarn’ adventure trip to Antarctica last December (2010) was the first
and practical part of the project. Next is a trip to South Australia to the Mawson section of the Museum
there, and of course, there is still the knitting of the replica of Sir Douglas Mawson's Balaclava, and
the auctioning to be done. What fabulous results will be achieved for the restoration of the
PS-- We did look for an ice floe for me to sit and be spinning
yarn, but we did not find a sizeable, safe one on which to land.
The Competition is now
and the overall winner will be chosen
by 30th June, 2011
The prize is a Hand-knitted beenie of hand-spun wool, the wool
that Marion spun on the way down to Antarctica, from the skein of "Antarctic Sunrise" - the fibre donated
by the Tamar Valley Spinners to accompany Marion on her adventure. It comes with a Certificate of Authenticity
and Origin, and is a truly unique garment.....
