Knitted Metal!

Yes, believe it or not his bracelet was knitted using wire and beads. Caroline bought the kit a few weeks ago and we have all been watching as she has worked on it. It look fantastic and it doesn't feel at all scratchy when wearing it. Caroline is now working on a lace poncho - also in purple.

Stephanie knitted up this lovely baby set. Sadly this will be going in her box with all of her other finished items as she had no plans as to who she was knitting it for.

Roberta also had a couple of finishes which she gave to the shoebox charity. The first is a scarf which is amazingly soft. She knitted it using yarn she got at last weeks swap. The second is a baby jumper which was originally intended for her grand daughter. It's going to be too big which is why she gave it to the charity.

As you all know the Fort were lovely and gave us vouchers. After lots of suggestions as to what to do with them we are going to raffle them off amongst the group. It's just 50p for a strip and then that money raised is going to this years charity which is the Shoebox charity. I will do the draw on the 31st May that way everyone has time to buy tickets if they want them.
