20 June 2015

A very grey day outside, but full of life and colour in our room.   A day for hot chocolates and soup too.

Dawn crocheted this jacket despite her damaged wrist so she could work out how to make an adult sized one

Pauline has been dyeing yarn, love how bright this is

Sandra brought this along as an example of a sheep to garment finished item.

Diane has been busy making bassinet blankets for charity

Unfortunately I can't remember who made this wonderful cabled cardigan, but the recipient is one lucky guy; it may have been Diane.

Diane S spun this lovely gradient which was dyed by Anna

More dyeing, I think this was Kerry's.
I apologise if I've got any names wrong this time, I didn't have pen and paper at the time so had to use my memory instead; never a good move.

At this point it's looking like I won't get to guild this coming weekend as my husband has Judo commitments, I will endeavor to find something suitable to post on here though even if it's not our group's work.

Saturday 08 June 2015

Better late than never, unfortunately I had to leave early on Saturday so I don't know who made half of the items on here, but they still deserve to be admired so I'm going to show you what was completed this week.

Lovely wee baby jacket with a shimmer to it, the yarn carries a strand of shiny

I loved these booties, so sweet and the lace just takes them a step up.

Yarn that was dyed on Wednesday and you can see how it knits up too.

Anna's been spinning Wensleydale, I love this stuff, no sproing, but such a lovely sheen and despite being a longwool it's not prickly.

A lovely weaving sampler/scarf

Rachelle's been spinning Finn, this is two different colourways plyed together, approximately Aran weight.

Rachelle has also been knitting socks for her youngest.

I think this was alpaca in natural shades

More dyeing

Paula's been busy knitting, the colour is off on this though, the white is actually a light steel blue/grey

This is her second colourway, once again not quite right for the colour, I think I need to change the white balance.
