First a reminder for Anne's workshop on 16 August on Freeform Knitting. We're all welcome to sit and watch but if we want to take part, we need to bring 4 or 5 balls of toning colours in different textures and plies, with needles to match each ply.

Brenda  brought this entrelac to Show and Tell:

Eleanor and one of our three Marias brought items in unusual yarns to Show and Tell.  Eleanor made the cushion cover too :

white shawl in dairing yarn on a knitted cushion

The shawl's white yarn is Dairing - stainless steel covered in silk. It holds its shape when pinched or moulded with the fingers.

Meg, our Charity Convenor, rewarded us  this week by passing around a plate of prizes: jelly babies for those who've made Trauma Bears, jelly beans for beanie makers, liquorice allsorts for square enthusiasts and marshmallows for those making Anne Northam's titbits. Unfortunately there is no photo to record this - they mysteriously all disappeared in a hurry.
