Saturday 28 May 2016

Business as usual for this Saturday and hopefully the next one.  The following two Saturday's however may be photo-less as I have a birthday party to run for my son on the first one and the second is Woolfeast which I suspect a lot of us will be at; I may take photos there to post on the blog though as we will have a stand there.

This Saturday though was a nice one, fairly busy again (when aren't we?) and a few new people coming through to sign up to learn to spin. 

Dawn knit this gorgeous blanket from alpaca, from memory it used a pattern her mother had previously used.

Dawn also made these glittery mitts, warmth and glamour all in one item

and she cleared the loom, this shawl is gorgeous and will be so warm!

Rachelle's been busy while not at guild, this is a jersey knit in Maniototo Wool's merino; Aran weight yarn.  It's been worn constantly since being finished

and the multicoloured 3-ply in this photo is the last of the yarn being spun for her next jersey; it's all Barrier Reef colourway by Heavenly Wools.  The singles are more Heavenly Wools, this time in the Empress of India colourway, and the final skein is suri and silk.

Margaret Stove has been knitting beautiful lacy things for babies

Rosalie wove this weft faced piece, looking good.

These hats are knit by various members and are all for chemotherapy patients

Rose wove this sampler a while ago, it looks like it would be a fun thing to do

This is Jan's first handspun alpaca, I think it's turned out brilliantly and it's beautifully soft too.

Sarah has been knitting, this was yarn she overdyed

and the back too.  It looks like a comfortable and warm cardigan; flattering too.

Mary Catherine has been spinning again, this is some of Anna's fibre

And finally Elena (sp?) has been spinning too, this is so even!  The fibre is black alpaca.
