Our Charity

As you can see Margaret finished her white sampler blanket. The pattern was from the magazine The Knitter which is a favourite amongst the group. Margaret has now moved on to her first attempt at knitting socks.

Roberta said she had been busy over the week and indeed she had. First of all the finished baby cardigan. As mentioned earlier Roberta doesn't like the cardigan due to the colouring of the yarn. Most of us like that aspect of the cardigan. The second is of a lovely scarf Roberta knitted for herself. It was admired so much that she is now knitting another one for a friend. Last, Roberta also finished a lovely green cardigan for herself.

Alison finished her railway cross stitch last week but wanted to wait until it was pressed and framed before any photo's were taken. It was worth the wait as it looks stunning in the frame. This was a Christmas present for her dad. She is now working on a cross stitch of a house for herself.
Lastly this is a pair of socks I knitted for a friend. It's done in Sirdar crofter fair isle yarn. Which is a favourite among some members of the group just now. A number have used it and have liked the fair isle pattern the yarn makes. I am still working on a throw for my sister and knitting socks in between.

Ginnie was working on a pair of socks using a lovely alpaca yarn. Janette was working on a quilted pram cover. Donna was working on the last finishing touches of her snowman (hopefully we will have a photo next week). Dawn Marie was working on her scarf and hat set. Moira was starting up some crochet. Josephine was working on a white crochet blanket. Our Julia was back and was working on her pink cardigan. Joyce was working on a top. Helen was working on socks for her daughter, Laura.

We also got a final vote on what charity we will do this year. We are going to knit squares and send them away. The squares will become blankets for children in Africa (it gets very cold at night). I will print out the details for everyone for next week.
