Saturday 30 July 2016

Rachelle's final Tour de Fleece spinning. Left to right we have Gotland with leftover singles, Gotland with Corriedale and Merino/linen.

Rachelle's very colourful handspun jersey.  All the yarn was spun from Kate's Heavenly Wools fibre using the Barrier Reef colourway on different bases from Merino through to charcoal Haunui.

Valerie has been spinning too, the three natural colours are going to be used together

Kerry knit this for the hospital Chemo patients

and she wove this, the top part was all singles but they didn't hold up to being warp so were taken off the loom and used for weft only on the second piece.

Jan R has been making mini-skeins

Rosemary sampled her purchase from the Amberly fleece sale on Friday

Sonya has been busy spinning with Tour de Fleece as well
and she made this amazing crocheted blanket!


Jan made this very striking hat

Janet made this skirt, she's made a few of these over the years and they all look grand.


I'm not sure whose this is, but love the pink with the chocolate

Andrea's son made the batt using her blending board and then she's spun his creations, he has a grand eye for colour.

She also spun this from some of Kate's fibre, the colourway was chosen by her son for a hat

Sue has been knitting nice bright mitts

and Heather has been experimenting with her weave structures, very cool.
Don't forget next Saturday is the Have a Go Day at Halswell Centre, 341 Halswell Road – 10am – 2pm - Gold coin entry – classes available.    The guild will also be open.
