We also had Kathy come along to pick up the yarn we had spun for her from her pet sheep Pixie. This was a special spin as a thank you to the people who have provided us with storage for all our gear since the earthquakes, the best part is that we spun it as a guild and most people had a go at it.
|Kathy was very pleased to have Pixie back in yarn form.|
Jan was our first person to show off her latest work
|This scarf used Alchemy yarns kid mohair and silk yarn|
|A drop stitch scarf, a lot of length in this one.|
|Isn't this a gorgeous wee jersey? Some lucky wee person is going to be nice and warm this winter.|
|And finally another scarf in fuschia|
|A sweet wee hat and bootie set.|
|And finally her lap blanket from handspun yarn.|
|A handpsun handwoven scarf, Kim was breaking the rules.|
|Skeins dyed using beetroot and onion skins.|
|Handspun hat in romney|
|This is handspun corriedale overdyed by Mary Catherine possibly for use in colourwork.|
Finally I have a picture of the stash acquisition that occurred at Festival; this by the way, is only what they brought in today. Apparently there was some left at home, including in one case a new Majacraft Rose spinning wheel!
|I think this is very impressive, and I wish I was there!|
