Saturday 29 October 2016

It was the AGM yesterday and as a result we didn't go through the items on the table at the usual time.  I don't know who made most of them so it'll just be the photos this time.

I think this was Andrea's work.

This was also Andrea's work, she was wearing it when she arrived, and it looked good :)

Saturday 22 October 2016

It was nice to spend some time at the guild this weekend, I suspect most of us also spent some time in the garden with it being Labour Weekend.  We had a few visitors through the rooms as well, we always enjoy that.

There are a few items to show off from the table this weekend, enjoy.

This is Wayne's handspun and hand woven floor runner, it turned out beautifully.
Rachelle finished these socks for her son, unfortunately his feet have suddenly grown widthwise as well as in length so they're now hers.

Jenny has been spinning, gorgeous colours!

Mary Catherine mad the loop cowl, should be very handy for next winter.

Heather has been weaving bookmarks, they're so small and sweet!

Iris has been spinning art yarn again, this is corespun and you can see it in use in the "scarfy thing" she made

and this is tailspinning, also by Iris.

Jan has been spinning natural wool, I love the colour changes that happen when spun from the lock

Saturday 15 October 2016

Another lovely day, I got more talking done than knitting and I suspect I wasn't the only one!  We also had a number of visitors through looking at what we were doing and at the Heritage Week display.  I will post photos of that later, but I used the good camera and at the moment I can't hook that up to the PC as it's in the shop.  I'm using my husband's laptop till it comes back, which means I can use cellphone pics, but not the DSLR.

This is Mary Catherine's cotton spinning, very impressive!

Diane made these teeny little booties for a premmie baby

Heather wove this, it's currently a shawl length, but she's thinking about turning it into a top.

She also wove this from leftovers, such a fun way to make fabric!

and this is Heather's too, the colours work so well together.

This is Diane S's spinning, it's brighter in person.

Jan knit this gorgeous wee hat

Ellie has almost finished this blanket using a yarn with alpaca in it, wonderful weight and a nice muted tone.
Ellie has also been making a quilt, this one is using all Liberty of London fabrics (which are wonderful to work with)

Saturday 08 October 2016

Still feels odd to think we're in October already!  Once again today I didn't get to stay long enough to find out who made the items on the display table aside from one so it'll be mostly just pictures with no comments.  Hopefully I'll get to stay longer next weekend.
Oh, and the photos are from my cellphone, at least one didn't focus and I didn't notice till I got home, my apologies for that.

This is Pam's handspinning

And the blur that should have been Sonya's lovely cowl from handspun
 There was one more photo of some natural handspun, you can see a hint of it in the sock photo above, but for some reason although it displays fine on my phone and in my files it won't upload properly to Blogger and comes up with a mostly blank shot.

Saturday 01 October 2016

I finally got to guild after all the family stuff and then a gastro bug which I didn't want to risk spreading.
I didn't get to stay for long this time though, unfortunately I had to leave early due to someone bringing the wrong yarn for his weaving, so I don't know who made most of what I took photos of.

Rachelle's Heavenly Wools Doubtful on Oatmeal Haunui plied with Perendale

and also Heavenly Wools Okarito on Dark Moorit Haunui plied with Suri Alpaca

Rachelle's Merino/Silk dyed by Anna Harris, I named it Captain America as it's red white and blue.

Rachelle's pom pom hat using Heavenly Wools Barrier Reef on various Haunui bases.

I think this was Ria's lovely work

Not sure who's this lovely creation is

same goes for this, I think it's Navajo plied

Gorgeous pair of socks

and such sweet little baby hats
