Allison is another member who sends her knitted finishes on before we can photograph them. She finished a few things up on Tuesday night so of course I wasn't going to let the opportunity pass by. She knitted this lovely baby set. The hat is done in baby crofter yarn. She wasn't sure about it for a whole cardigan and so then decided to use it as edging. It's really effective. This meant she had enough left over to knit this cute baby beret.
Dawn also had a finish along and this is also for a baby. She has been crocheting this beautiful baby blanket. It's done in Paton's Smoothie which is a lovely striping yarn. The colours are amazing and are set off by the white edging.
Helen has made some more quilted book covers. This time for Elaine who wants to give them to her daughter for her holiday. These covers are made to fit larger sized books. The choice of fabric is lovely. Helen is thinking about adding pockets inside so they can hold more than just books.
The lovely Val is always on call to help fellow quilters. Last week it was Helen and this week it was Magdalena. Magda is making a quilt for her sister. The colours and choice of fabric are amazing!
Whilst Magdalena was busy getting help for her quilt, daughter Suzanna also needed help. Margaret stepped in and helped her to cast off. Suzanna is making something for our challenge next week.
Like her mum, Suzanna is a lady of many talents. On Saturday she had a dancing competition and won all these medals. It was her birthday too and was heading to hobbycraft to pick up some goodies with her birthday money (we are a good influence) ;). Happy Birthday Suzanna!
This coming Tuesday is our challenge night. The theme is 'Me'. I have heard a few hints of what people are planning. Can't wait to see everyone's projects.
