Who We Are and Where to Find Us
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 recently picked cross stitch back up after a four-year break, and Daphne is giving embroidery and sewing a try.

Please join us in our Rose Opal Knits Facebook group to talk about craft projects and to participate in current and future KALs and MALs.
