Temptations

Today we had our buy and sell day.   Most of us were fairly restrained but a few things did change hands.

We also had a few lovely items on display

My merino and cashmere hat, it will be dyed as the colour doesn't suit me, but the yarn is too lovely not to use.

Mary Catherine made this top using some cotton yarn.  It was partly done when she got it, but she finished it.
 
Another of Mary Catherine's pieces, this was an alpaca/merino blend and has wonderful drape.

Joanne in her wonderfully bright cowl and gloves; this will definitely give her a lift in the middle of winter.

The back of Joanne's gloves, I love them!

Jan R put her freeform knitting onto this bag to display it, rather than putting it in a bag and never seeing it again.

Detail of the knitting.

Sonya made this jersey for her eldest for this winter; he'll be easy to spot.   It's absolutely gorgeous.

And new pj's for the same lucky lad.  Those monkeys are very cute.

Rosemary spun this yarn using some fibre she was given by an English visitor and some NZ fibre to make it go further.

Brenda brought this book in, written by her daughter and illustrated by herself.    It's for sale too!   A very nice wee book for children.
And that was it for the day.    Don't forget that next Saturday there isn't a guild meeting because too many of us are at the Festival.   Jenny is holding a spinning day at her place instead, see your guild notices for her contact details.
