Saturday 23 April 2016

Another good day, not quite as busy as a few of our members are up in Auckland getting ready for Festival, even more will be away next weekend as that's when Festival is actually on.  Next year it's here in Christchurch!

Back to business, the showing off of the wonderful selection on our show and tell table this weekend, plus some random "on the wheel" photos.

Jenny has been knitting socks, a good way to use up leftovers

Sarah has been dying, the skein on the bottom was originally green and is much more to her taste now

Sandra knit this shawl in Vintage Purls yarn using the pattern Connie

don't you just love how natural wool looks on the bobbin?

Though dyed merino/cashmere/silk is also yummy

and this is the beginning of filling another bobbin

Meg has been knitting mittens, I think this is probably handspun

Jan's been busy knitting little striped socks

and has finished her Hitchhiker shawl as well, I love the stripes

Jan knit this scarf from some yarn Anna dyed a while back

Janet used her first handspun to make a tea cosy, I think it really needs a teapot to be seen at its best though.

This is Wayne's weaving, he's done a brilliant job

and Heather has also been weaving, this is a set of tea towels in cottolin.
