A number of us joined a knitting session at the end of the day too, we're all knitting either a square or circular shawl using Elizabeth Zimmerman's instructions or something similar. It'll be interesting to see what everyone comes up with. Mine was going to be a different pattern with some rose pink yarn, now it'll be that same pattern I'd planned, but with purple yarn as it turned out my rose pink was too fragile to cope with a circular start. It's a learning experience for us all and I've already learned something.
There was a small selection on the display table today, all lovely
|Joanne spun these two beauties. The green is Heavenly Wools on light grey half bred and the multicoloured is called Jewels by Fibre2go on 50/50 merino/silk|
|Rachelle's merino/silk dyed by Anna Harris; this was a quick spin to test out her new wheel.|
