June is almost over!

Not a lot of items on display today, but what there was was definitely worth a look (and feel).
.
Janet was wearing the skirt she made as a stash-busting exercise; I actually took this photo a wee while back, but forgot about it, apologies.  She'd already done a green one and is working on another one now.
These skirts are absolutely stunning, and perfect for the current cold weather.

Merino/Silk (some of Anna's fibre) and also some camel/? singles; the camel was the one you really want to pat.

Sales table fibre with silk in it, plied with something else, sorry my brain's a bit mushy at the moment and I can't remember details, including the name of the lovely lady who spun this and the yarn above it.

The socks I knit for my husband.  The pattern is Scott Base Socks and I highly recommend it; great for big feet!

Sonya's latest socks, still damp from blocking, but beautiful

Sonya's cardigan, apparently she gets the urge to knit cardi's when pregnant; this was very pretty.

I think that's everything for now.  Don't forget we're at St Marks in Opawa Rd next Saturday, and the Tour de Fleece started today (runs alongside the Tour de France, but in my opinion much more fun!).
I'm spinning some lovely English Leicester which I hope I'll have made sufficient progress on to show off next week.

Saturday 21st June Cancelled

Due to the hideous weather it has been decided to cancel tomorrow.   Everyone keep warm, knit, spin and weave so we can all admire what you got done next weekend!
I've finished a pair of socks myself, but probably won't have time for much more as eldest has Scouts this weekend (unless they cancel) and we have new flooring going down on Monday so lots of furniture shuffling again.

Mid-Winter Christmas Lunch

A reminder that this Saturday is our Midwinter Christmas Lunch.   Take a plate of food to share as well as your own plate, cup and cutlery.    It's being held at St Marks in Withells Rd and the rooms are available from 10am, with lunch starting at 12pm.
There won't be a photographic record from me I'm afraid, I have a small boy's 9th birthday to celebrate instead, the cake is currently baking and the presents are bought.

Hope everyone has fun!

A day of scarves and other warmers

An absolutely stunning vest

Lovely yarn

More lovely yarn

A bias scarf and some socks from leftovers

Pauline's handwarmers

This scarf was stunning, I think it was Diane's

Another beautiful scarf

A nice warm pair of socks in a glorious green.
More handwarmers, these weren't actually there as I had to give them to their recipient before our meeting.
