On A Charity Roll!
Everyone is on a roll with the charity jumpers. Seems to be addictive to knit. These two were done by Stephanie and Margaret. Stephanie is knitting yet another of these jumpers. Whilst Margaret has moved on to some baby clothes.
These were all knitted by Ally. She has been using up all her left over yarn and is still knitting more too.
Ally also brought these along. They were, however, knitted by her friend Karen. This is the first time she has knitted in years. To be honest I think these are my favourites. Particularly the stripey one.
Rhona came by just to drop these off. She also took the opportunity to use up some odds and ends.
Last, but not least, Lyn has also been using up her odds to knit a few. I love the colour combinations. She went on to knit other things which you will see in a moment.
There is only a couple of weeks left to hand in these jumpers. Roberta and her friend have been overwhelmed by how many have been handed in. Not including these ones she was able to hand in 19 so far.
This lovely cupcake cross stitch was done by Jill. She only started it in January and it didn't take her long at all to do. I love cupcake designs. She is now working on a teddy bear cross stitch.
This is what Lyn had moved on to knit. How cute is he? The majority of the hedgehog is knitted with yarn and then later she knits lace ribbon into it. Very effective and she has been knitting them in different colours. She's not knitting them for anything in particular but hands them in to charity.
I can announce that we have a full day for Gartmore at home and quite a mix of classes. We have Izzy teaching us how to sew cute bags. Anthea is going to teach us how to do a scrapbook page. Magdalena is going to teach us how to crochet those delicate lace doilies. We also have another offer from the lovely Val. She has offered to give a demonstration on Sashiko quilting. If you haven't seen it before it's truly beautiful. I can't wait for that.
