Well today was our last gathering for the year. No formal meeting, just a time to knit and natter, with a few show and tell.
Thelma had a jumper to show us that she made for a nun. When asked if she could knit this jumper she didn't feel she could say no to a nun! The jumper is a classic round neck raglan in Bendigo Woollen Mills Duet - an 8 ply 70% wool and 30% mohair mix. Thelma used the shade Mystic. The colour is gorgeous with the mohair strand giving a lovely fleck to the yarn. The classic style very much suited the yarn. Beautiful Thelma.
Yvonne had two lovely scarves that she has made for Ann Collins (or one of her customers to be precise). The scarves are made using Ann Collins' hand dyed 2/20 silk in feather and fan stitch. Again, another simple classic stitch that lets the yarn do the talking.
Sandy was wearing a recent Christmas present - a Lacis wrist yarn holder. Someone doesn't wait until Christmas eve or morning to open her presents. With this yarn holder, Sandy was able to walk around knitting with easy access to her yarn.
Finally, Meg had one half of the wall hanging that we have been working on for Yarning Our Country. It is coming together so well. Meg has done a fantastic job of putting all our squares together.
Once again, I must apologise for the photos - they don't do justice to the knitting. I must remember to bring my camera, I must remember to bring my camera, I must ...
Best wishes to everyone for a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.
