Saturday 24 January 2015

Another warm day today, but I think we all got a fair bit done, there was certainly a lot of talking which was lovely.   The table was well covered today too.

Pam spun the yarn and then knit the shawl, it's for her mother and is beautiful

Pam also knit this lovely cardigan using hand dyed yarn from Red Riding Hood Yarns


This is the back
Pam has also been playing with her Stylus on her wheel and made this fluffy skein of angora goat fluff in the woollen style.

Kim's been having fun with her wheel too, I'm not sure of the fibres of the top two, but the bottom one is Merino.

This is a Katniss Cowl that Kim knit for a niece using her handspun; it's not oriented correctly, the bit on the right is the neck.  It looks really good when worn.

Meg's been making mittens to donate to schools.

My son George wove this in his holiday with very little help from me (Rachelle); very proud!

Rachelle's Romney, the fibre was dyed by Chilco.

And more of Rachelle's neverending grey perendale.

Kerry dyed this polwarth using lichen, I love the gentle colour that resulted.

Paula finished this lovely crescent shaped shawl, several people would have liked to take it home, but unfortunately for them Paula still wanted it.   The yarn is handspun Ashford Merino/Silk

Paula's also been spinning, this is 15 micron huacaya alpaca; the boy who provided the fibre has won awards.

Paula has also been trying out double kntiting, and this is the gorgeous result.   I think one of these for winter would keep you lovely and warm.

And finally, Carol has been knitting children's socks, any child would love these to death.
