A Wingspan?

Not sure if that's the right pattern, but if not it's something very similar.
Knit by Pauline from some of Anna Harris' yarn.
Not much else to take photo's of this weekend, everyone seems to be mid-project.   Janet's working on a chevron skirt in greens, I'm working on a green shawl and most other people seemed to be busily spinning a variety of colours and preparations.  I think everyone's getting ready to display their work at the Christmas lunch on December 15th at St Marks in Withells Rd, Avonhead.   I'm certainly looking forward to it, will be very interesting to see what everyone else has done with their mohair.

10th November

So good to get back to the guild today.  It was the monthly meeting which went well, plans in place for the Christmas lunch at St Marks in Withells Rd, Avonhead on Saturday 15th December.   We've got the extra room booked just like we did for the midwinter Christmas so it should be a lovely day. 

Today was a good turnout, I counted 22 people and Anna Harris was there to supply our fibre habit.   I'm afraid I succumbed, but I certainly wasn't the only one by a long shot!

More yarn, yummy!
It'll be a while before we see her again as she's got lots of cruise ships to meet at Akaroa.

On the display table we had beautiful work once again.
