05 April 2014

Joanne spun this woollen, using her new Majacraft stylus for the first time.    Apparently it'll probably be a hat and it's certainly soft enough for one!

This hat is also Joanne's, one of her earlier spinning results using Wabi Sabi Fibre.   The yarn required a little time in the stash to marinade, but after aging a sufficient amount of time it evolved into this lovely wee number.
And this is what Joanne does with leftovers, it's now a beautiful brooch

And Joanne's final piece for the week, is this shawl knit in the Bayfield pattern using some of Anna's laceweight yarn.

One of several singlets for the Royal Singlet Project is this green and white striped one by Rosemary

These were knit by Jan R (green) and Diane (white)

These two by Valerie

And these two by Meg
From top to bottom we have romney and then merino both spun by Diane and then polwarth spun by Valerie

Socks dyed and knit up by me (Rachelle) for my youngest son; he approves.

And finally, a pair of mobius scarves by Mary Catherine
And that's the table this week, it was fairly full!    Next week there isn't a meeting for the guild, instead we've been invited to celebration of incorporation for The Textile and Fibre Arts Network.  It's being held at Block 4, Hammersley Park School which is off Amos Place.   It's a shared lunch so bring something along to share.    See the March/April notices for further information.
I'm afraid I can't make it, so nothing for the blog next week; I'll be frantically painting instead.
