First of all we had the return of our Ginnie. Not only did she come back to us she was knitting something other than socks (actually she was knitting socks too). The first photo above is a lovely lace scarf she is knitting from the book Arctic Lace. Obviously inspired by her recent quilting cruise in Alaska. The yarn she is using is called qiviut which comes from the down of the musk ox. It is so lovely and soft and Ginnie is enjoying knitting with it. Very expensive too though. The second photo you can see her pinning down a quilt she is working on. She decided to make use of the extra space we have. Hopefully I will get a photo of it all finished.
The above three projects were completed by Roberta. She knitted a lovely cardigan for her granddaughter. In order to use up some white yarn she used it to knit the border and bands. Gives it a more striking look. She also crocheted these lovely blankets (just in time for the lovely weather we are having). She has also been working on another project as a favour to our Josephine. I have a photo of that too but will show it in the next post.
Donna has been working on a lovely beaded scarf using kidsilk haze. In the meant time she has managed to finish this lovely flower broach.
This beautiful card is an example of Dawn's other talents. She made this card as for me from herself and Donna. It's a thank you for the sock knitting lesson I gave. I can't believe the amount of detail that has went into the card and it's definitely getting pride of place. Dawn is currently working on a lovely cable scarf for a friend.
We also had some new crafts being tried out. Fiona and Lesley both picked up Christmas latch hook kits from Hobbycraft. You can see them trying it out for the first time.
