Saturday 26 August 2017

Got a heap of finished items for you today, this could take a while if you don't have much bandwidth.  The first few photos are taken with my macro lens, I'm not putting descriptions on those, but the full skeins/fabric will be further down with descriptions.

Faith spun this, it's some of Kate Mahoney's fibre and is plied with alpaca.

Kerry has been busy spinning too, lovely subtle colours.

Susan has been spinning too, the colours remind us spring is almost here.

Ria's been busy, as well as this colourful merino we have...

1200m of fine alpaca, and..

finally 2 skeins of polwarth.  The top one is a little less soft as it has the darker wool in it.

Valerie has been busy on her loom, this is all that's left from 5m that she wove for a Ruana that's already been made

and this is the second 5m of fabric for a Ruana for her daughter.

Heather was the spinner for this yarn which was a fleece with two colours in it.

Jan has been sampling Romney

Diane had a birthday and this is one of the lovely gifts she received, it's a felted scarf

and a pair of knee warmers for when she has her knee replacement
and finally this gorgeous shawl that was knit in secret for her.

Diane herself has been busy sewing up bunnies, this is one with a spare dress that was finished recently.

This jersey has been around for about 3 decades, Mandy brought it in to show, it's beautiful, all those wee rosebuds.

and here is Mandy's most recent finished jersey in handspun polwarth/romney cross

with wee bullion flowers on it as well.

Janet made this lovely hat and scarf, the buttons are the perfect finishing touch.

Rosalie has been dyeing fibre, these colours are so pretty!

Marion finished this crocheted shawl, it's got a great weight to it and the lace looks lovely, she also had her first finished spinning with her, but unfortunately I didn't get a photo of that.

Jan knit this very cute wee baby hat

and finally, these slippers are all by Gavin, Rose's relative who she taught to knit just before she moved, he's done very well!
Have a great week everyone and I'll be back next week with more finished objects of desire to inspire you with.
