Donna finished her fingerless mitts on the night. The pattern is from a magazine and called for the use of striping sock yarn. Donna wanted to keep her sock yarn for her sock knitting lessons from Ginnie on our weekend away. So instead she used this lovely pale gray yarn. It really brings out the pattern of the lace.
Ginnie has also been busy. In her determination to use up some of yer sock yarn stash she knitted these socks for her niece. Funnily enough she was working on another pair of socks (whilst putting off a green pair she started a while back because she doesn't like the colour).
We also had another lovely finish from Dawn Marie. She crocheted this lovely baby blanket using self striping yarn. This uses quite small stitches but Dawn still managed to finish it in no time.
We also got another large pile of squares. These were from Elaine, Roberta and Alison. Ginnie mentioned that a magazine has asked for squares to be sent in. Those who donate could win a prize. I found the article in Knit Today and the squares are actually being sent to the same charity that we are sending ours to. Ginnie thought we could send off what we have done so far to the magazine so that our group has a chance to win some prizes. So, tonight I will get a list of yarn types people are using and pick up any others that have been done before sending them away. I will also attach a letter (and possibly a photo) with some info about our knitting group.
Oh, we did have one more finish. Elaine knitted a lovely teddy bear for Linda's shoe box charity. She made the pattern up herself. I did take a photo but it's too blurry to post. Which is a shame as it really was lovely.
