Saturday 07 April 2018

We had a lovely talk about Antarctica in this week's meeting from Christine, she's written the book Knitting in Antarctica which is beautiful.  We got to see some of the layers that are worn outside which was interesting; though not the red jacket since those stay at the base.

We also had a good range of lovely items on the display table this week too.
This is Rachelle's work.  One pair of socks with beads and duplicate stitching, a modular shawl using commercial and handspun yarn and a dragon named Ramoth who insists on being a smoker despite the health risks.

Heather has been making peggy squares for pram blankets.

Eleanor spun this merino/nylon 

This is a book that is beautiful and useful

Jan S finished this shawl, the pattern is called Reina, but I can't find it on Ravelry so I may have misspelled it.

Kerry purchased this yarn and fibre while down in Wanaka

and spun this yarn, she's not sure of the fibre type, but it is rather strong.

Heather K proves she can knit as well as weave

Jan F knit this gorgeous wee vest as a scrapbuster project

Kate M has been spinning thicker yarns; these are gorgeous

and a huge 300gm skein of gradient yarn too.
