March 8th meeting

Wasn't it nice to see the sunshine after such a wet week?  A get-together with all our friends helps a lot too.   I think the enforced time inside helped some of our members get busy with their wheels and needles and looms though; take a look!

Jan's Italian kid and silk scarf; lovely work.

Joanne's Merino/silk, I suspect it might have been Anna's fibre.

Rose spun this lovely merino which was left over from Patsy Z's course.
Ria spun this Romney, never seen Romney spun this fine.

Rose knit these socks from Kaffe Fasset's Regia Design Line yarn.

Kerry finished her Merino/silk which was dyed by Anna; been admiring this for a few weeks while she was spinning it.

Kerry's also been busy on the loom, this is the last wee bit from the bags she was making for a wedding.

Kerry also knit this scarf from some of Shona's fine merino that she'd spun up; don't know when she sleeps with all this work!

Carol felted this cushion, it's yet to be sewn up; hence the safety pins.

Rachelle's handsewn eighteenth century shift from handkerchief linen and sewn with linen thread.

I can't remember who owned this, might be Jan.  

Pat brought this in to show us, she made it in 1989 from a kit; the colourwork was already complete and you knit the rest of the jersey and there was some fabric included for a skirt.   She was going to give it to charity, but I believe it may have found a home with one of our other ladies; too good to chuck!
Next week we're at St Marks in Withells Rd; see you there!
