September 14th

Today was committee meeting day so I didn't get to see the creations until after lunchtime, we went a little over time.

Sonya's wee cardigan; the buttons are from Buttons by Benji who is a local artisan.

Eleanor spun the lovely multi coloured yarn on the left; the green was spun by Jenny

This little purse is by Joanne from the latest Vintage Purls sock club.   She used leftovers rather than the yarn supplied.    I forgot to bring mine in completely!   A wonderful project for leftovers, there's a butterfly option available as well.

Linda knit this lovely thick blanket from some of her first handspun.

A pair of bright socks knit by Sandra

Julia knit these slippers for her grandson; should keep him nice and warm next winter.

Fran knit this lovely blanket to help keep some wee people warm in the car.

Jan made this cowl; it can also be worn as a hooded shawl; I think Jan was getting a little too warm after modelling this.

The back view.    I think this is lovely and beautifully practical as well.
This afternoon some of us also attended a design course being run by Fran; it was very interesting though not quite what I expected.   I think today's class was possibly more for those who paint or do tapestry weaving.   Very helpful for making me look at things differently though, amazing what you can turn a potato masher to.   Next month we have another session which I believe will have more emphasis on colour which is what I need most I think.   I won't say I'll never do tapestry weaving; that's what I said about weaving and I now have a loom and am working on my first warp.
I'll get onto the homework too, fairly soon as school holidays are looming which is not the best time to be doing course work.

Next week we're at St Marks in Withells Rd, normal room so I'll see you all there; have a great week!
