Saturday 09 Jan 2016

I'm not sure who knit this, was out at lunch when the table was being gone through.

Rachelle knit this hat using older handspun in teal.  The darker is Romney with glitz and the lighter is an alpaca with the occasional duck down spin into it.
Rachelle spun this Aran weight yarn from Heavenly Wools fibre, it's for a jersey

I think this was Jenny's, but I could be wrong. It was prepped for her and is lovely!

Jenny used a sock yarn to produce these pink socks – the repeat was not to her liking so she changed the pattern to suit what she was looking for.




Valerie has spun some of the pink wool and this one is hers.

Ria Navaho plied some purple/pink Merino

Anna spun this lovely alpaca and silk skein in the Blackberry colourway from Southern Alpacas.

Rosemary has been working on some orange.  She tells us orange is a fortunate colour to have in your home! We were surprised just how much orange is included in things around us.  This one is for the Open Day.

Jan spun some of the pink wool from the bucket and produced this lovely skein.

Sarah has finished her knitted lace pillow cases edges – they are to be a wedding present

Lynne has used a green dye to solar dye a purchase silk scarf.  This was knotted and left in the dye for a week in a jar. The effect is stunning

Sonya has begun a pair of pink socks too, this is the first one using a shorter version of the below pattern.

Sonya has also been making socks – these are shaped and have an intricate lace pattern on the centre panel.

Sonya has been knitting and produced this lovely Purple top down silk alpaca shawl – it is an original pattern

Sarah has been hand knotting pearls on silk again, the pink ones are fresh water pearls and the Ecru (cream) are glass pearls. They are a good example for the “tooth test” distinguishing real from imitation pearls.
