Saturday 29 July and 05 August 2017

Sorry about the delay from last weekend, had a computer disaster which meant I forgot to set this up!  A good side effect is you get a double dose of wonderful this weekend.

Saturday 29th July
We have a few people who were taking part in the Tour de Fleece, this is Rachelle's contribution. The dyed yarn is a combo-spin and will become a jersey, eventually.

This pile is Susan's spinning and dyeing.  The autumn shades were dyed on the yarn and the turquoise and butter was dyed in the top, can't wait to see that one spun up!

Valerie has been busy weaving, aren't they lovely?

she's also been busy on her wheel with a merino/silk on the right and polwarth on the left.

This is Ria's very fine polwarth

Kerry has been busy too, this wee cardigan is ready for a very lucky wee person

and this is a test skein, you'll see the finished pile further down in the next weekend's lot.

Margaret finished this cardigan, it's the third iteration in this yarn I believe, but this is the one that was meant!

Mandy has been spinning supersoft llama, she's very happy with this.

Joanne has been busy too, this is her laceweight steel spin, steel is the colourway, not the material.  The dyeing was done by Kate Mahoney.

More of Joanne', I believe the fibre for these ones was from Anna

and Joanne's combo spin, with swatch no less!

Janet knit this beret style hat in a lovely marled yarn
 Saturday 05th
Kerry has turned some of her weaving into this beautiful bag.
and this is the finished yarn which you saw the sample for earlier.

Mary Catherine has been spinning too, this fibre was the Rusted Hulk colourway from Kate and it's turned out beautifully.

and this is a mobius cowl also by Mary Catherine


Faith has been busy weaving, she's taken up Saori weaving which is exciting

and this incredibly cute wee hat is by Meg

Rosemary has been trying out natural dyes.  The peach is from flax with no mordant and the green is dock leaves and copper sulphate.

and finally, we have Eleanor's cowl, the colour isn't quite right it's more cobalt in real life.
Have a good week everyone, keep warm and dry and we'll see you again next weekend!
