Hello and welcome!
We are a mother-in-law (Erica) and daughter-in-law (Daphne) duo who love to spend our free time crafting. Both of us are passionate about knitting. We spend a lot of our time planning our next knitting projects while our hands are busy knitting our current projects. We also enjoy crochet, although we haven’t been crocheting for long. Erica has picked cross-stitch back up after a four-year break, and Daphne is trying her hand at embroidery, spinning, and sewing. We both love to modify patterns and design our own.
Erica is married to her high school sweetheart, and they have four children. Their three sons are 25, 18, and 12, and their daughter is a 4-year-old. Daphne is married to Erica’s oldest son, and they have a three-year-old son, one-year-old daughter, and a six month old baby.
We enjoy talking about our projects so much that we decided to start a podcast on YouTube on December 31, 2019. We were delighted to connect with other knitters and crafters during the isolation that many of us felt during 2020. We met so many kind and inspiring people through our podcast, and we hope that this blog will be an extension of that community.
We are looking forward to sharing updates, tips, and designs here. But most of all, we are looking forward to growing closer with other passionate knitters and crafters.
You can also find us as Rose Opal Knits on YouTube, Instagram, and in the Rose Opal Knits Facebook group. Life is busy, but there is always time to create something beautiful and useful. May your crafting time be cheerful and positively productive!
