More New Members!

As you all know Margaret has been knitting lots of baby clothes for a friend. She decided that since there was some yarn left in each of the colours to use it up. She knitted these cute baby bootees and embellished them with buttons. She also managed to knit matching mitts.

Anthea is one of our newer members. She learned to crochet not that long ago and hasn't looked back since. She recently finished this lovely crochet hook holder. I love the colour and the button on the front just sets it off (handy too).

I forgot to post a couple of my own finishes last week so here they are. The first one is the triangular granny square shawl. Donna taught us this method whilst we were in Gartmore. I used cotton in two shades of purple. The second is a pair of socks (big surprise) also in purple.

We had some knew member again this week. We had Grace who likes to cross stitch. She is working on a lovely tapestry at the moment which she finds allows her to craft and chat at the same time. We also had Raquel and her daughter Miriam. Raquel was working on a lovely crochet hat. She learned to crochet from her grandmother who crocheted until she was 100 and had to stop only because of her eye sight. Miriam was learning to knit and she was knitting a scarf. Glad our little group is growing again.

We are also planning our next craft day. It will be in November and it will be Christmas themed. So far we have quite a few lessons planned so it should be good fun.
