Saturday 27 May 2017

I've got photos from both this week and the previous one, last week was fairly busy and I just plum forgot to do the blog, means you get double the pretty this week though!

This is a suri and silk scarf that weighs virtually nothing and is beautifully soft by Ellie

This is also Ellie's, it's a long shaped scarf.

Joanne brought her new Majacraft bobbin to show off, it's very Barbie

and these are Emily's first tries at Navajo plying, I think she's well on her way to being a very good spinner

Jan plied her Pukeko on Saturday, this is a Heavenly Wools colour

and Meg's been busy making more mittens

This is the latest weaving on the Thorpe loom, it's a rag weaving piece.

Rose has been spinning too, the top one is a merino/nylon blend

Kerry has been busy spinning for Woolfeast
Eleanor has been trying out her new Majacraft wheel, lovely work
Mandy has just finished her new Scandiwegian cardigan from handspun she overdyed, this will wear like iron and she's expecting to be wearing it for the next couple of decades.

Natalie knit these the previous week, should be lovely and warm.

This is Emily's first ever spinning!

Kerry has been spinning possum/wool yarn for Woolfeast


Sue has been experimenting with auto wrapping

and this is also Sue's, I'm suspecting it's the Bollywood colourway by Kate Mahoney

And finally this is Rachelle's "Pussyhat", which she's calling her cat hat as she doesn't like the Pussy name.  When you wear it the corners look like cat ears.  It's in merino/linen handspun.
