Saturday 02 July 2016

Wow, we had a huge amount of finished lovelies on the table today!  This could take awhile, so here we go.
Dawn has been super busy, I think this was my favourite but that's because I love these colours so much!   A large wrap.
I believe this is the same warp as the other one, but different weft, such a different look.

Another of Dawn's pieces, loving the pattern on it, this was a longer shawl style wrap.


Rachelle's tea towels in cotton, a nice texture for drying dishes.

Riet has been spinning, these are so lovely and bright for this grey time of year.

Paula has been busy too, this is the latest of the test knits for Mary Anne Mace, the pattern is called Lace Bark

Paula also knit this hat for her son, I think it might be Merino/Possum and should keep him nice and warm
and another shawl by Paula, this is also by Mary Anne and is called Supplejack (I think).  I love how the pumpkin works with the blues.

Diane spun this, not her usual Navajo ply, this one is a 2-ply and is dyed by Fibre Artemis here in Christchurch, polwarth and silk if I remember correctly.


We were all in love with this handwoven coat made by Rose, she overdyed it as she didn't like the original colour.

Mary Catherine knit this gorgeous cardigan from a cone of merino/tencel, such a lovely feeling garment.

More of Mary Catherine's work, sorry it's not properly in focus, the top one is Romney and Mohair I think, the bottom is probably merino

And another of Mary Catherine's spins, also I think Merino, love the muted colours in this.

Jan knit this since Woolfeast, beautiful colour and she was wearing it when she came in.

Sonya knit these too little hat/scarf combos for her boys, a very cute way to keep warm.

These socks are for her boys as well, the blue is sparkly and there are beads too, her eldest admired the beads in the socks she was knitting for herself, now he has some of his own.

And these are Sonya's beaded socks for herself, loving the colours in this; pity beads don't show well in the photographs.

Rosalie has been knitting baby singlets, so sweet.

Tedge has been spinning, this was white Merino blended with coloured silk on a blending board and then dizzed off for spinning.  It's a lovely subtle yarn.

Margaret wasn't sure what she wanted to knit, so took a blank canvas and added things as she wanted to.

Heather was experimenting with collapse weave, it's an interesting technique and I'm sure there will be more experimentation.

Janet knit these wee baby hats, why are baby hats so cute?

Janet's daughter made this wee wall hanging and Janet brought it along to show us, it looks like something that would be fun to do.

Tedge knit this from a commercial yarn, very bright and warm, it's also very versatile.
