Saturday 16 April 2016

It was a lovely day on Saturday and the guild was full again, certainly the number of people attending has grown since we moved into The Tannery.  As usual there was a table full of lovely hand crafted works of art.

Kerry has been very busy at home, this is a set of linen mats.

and this is some brown cormo handspun

black boucle fabric

teeny tiny hats for newborns (are they really that small?)

This came off the guild 8-shaft loom

for some reason this one isn't on my list so I'm not sure who wove it

Joanne turned the amazing marigold coloured merino/silk she spun from Fibre2go into this lovely shawl.  The pattern is my Mary Anne Mace and is called Minarets and Lace; Joanne added the picot bind off and beads

This sock was knit by Rachelle on 2mm needles and has since been frogged as it was too hard to get on; lovely sock to look at though.

Pam's been busy again too, the top skein is dyed by Fibre2Go in the embers colourway and the blue and black is Yarnshine Galaxy Batts, both are gorgeous.

This scarf is also Pams, the pattern is called Null Hypothesis and is all science based, it was knit in Outlaw Yarns sportweight and feels divine.  The technique used is double knitting and it's fully reversible.

Rosalie found this in her bits and bobs and decided to finish it off for a lucky baby.

Bronwyn has been dyeing yarn, the one on the left is using onion skins, the green is a Minecraft colourway.

and her first gradient which should look wonderful once it's knit into something.

Sonya's been knitting socks, and you can just see a wee bit of the book binding she did as well.

and two samples of the sock Rachelle also knit, Sonya's are more wearable luckily.

Finally, this is Emily's first mini-sock, it's so cute!
