Elaine finished a hat for Linda's shoe box charity. Th yarn is a lovely dark blue with sparkles through it. On the night she was working on a matching scarf in a lacy pattern. Like the red sparkly yarn from last week everyone admired this one.
Moira finished the doll she had been working on. As you can see she is extremely cute and was well admired. Moira is now practising her crochet and is working on a lilac matt.
Dawn Marie finished the hat and scarf set she had been working on for a friend. The yarn she used is Sidar crofter which knits up like fair isle. A firm favourite in the group right now. The scarf was knitted in stocking stitch and the had was done in crochet. Dawn Marie is now working on a crochet baby blanket using striping yarn.
Another finish from Margaret this week. She knitted this baby cardigan with little cat buttons for a friend in work who is pregnant. Margaret is now working on a hat and mitts set to match the cardigan.
Helen has also been busy. A friend asked her if she would mind knitting some premature baby items to be sent to Haiti. As she has been given a very small time frame in which to get it done she decided on hats on managed to finish quite a few. She spent the evening finishing the hat in the second photo (photographed next to a book to give an idea of size) and making a start on another.
It's been a while since I listed what everyone else was working on. This time I took notes so that I didn't leave anyone out. Joyce was working on a lovely baby cardigan using fair isle yarn. It's very sweet with short sleeves and a little flower. Roberta was working on a cardigan using striping yarn. For a nice change this one is for herself. Linda was working on a pair of bed socks (Ginnie would have been proud). Magdalena was working on a lovely shawl. She hopes to get it finished in time for Gartmore so that she can wear it whilst exploring the grounds. Alison was working on her cross stitch of a house which seems to be growing quickly. Julia was there too but the top she is knitting for herself didn't make an appearance. I took up most of her time with her member of the month interview (look out for this in a few days) and of course we had aunty visiting.
Lastly we have our first three squares for our charity knitted by myself and Margaret. These were done with 42 stitches on 4mm needles rather than the 32 on 6mm.
