March 15th

A fairly quiet Saturday this time, I suspect a few of our members might have been down in Dunedin at Unwind.   
Pauline brought in the rug her son bought in the 1980's for $100US.   It's made from wool, camel, silk and goat fibre.   He bought it in Morocco and was told it was made around 1914.   It is used every day as it's beside his bed.   It is showing remarkably little wear, the colours have faded and there's a little wear on some edge areas, but that's about it!

Jan has been busy with cream merino from the leftovers from the Patsy Z class, green merino/silk dyed by our Anna, more of the leftovers from Patsy Z's class; this time dyed by Kate Mahoney and finally more of Anna's merino/silk in purple on the right.

Ria knit this lovely little singlet and hat set.

Sonya knit this for the first round of Sock Madness out of yarn dyed by Soft Like Kittens in Auckland
And finally we have a jersey lot of yarn spun by Janet which she's wound up to make herself a jersey.
