Tuesday night was sweltering and I actually thought that our band of crafters would be busy soaking up some rays in their gardens. Luckily, the call of the knitting group was too strong and we had a good number of people there.

This is Isabel's pride and joy! She has mastered the bauble stitch and proudly showed it off to one and all. The yellow scarf was a combined effort by two of Isabel's patients. Isabel just added some finishing touches.  It looks great!

In this sweltering heat our attention was on the scarves for the Shoe Box appeal. I managed to hand in 3three scaves to Linda this week. That means I have three raffle tickets for the big prize draw at the end of the project. I used garter stitch in one, double moss stitch in the pale pink and Irish moss stitch in the middle scarf. .

Margaret finished a scarf in this Italian yarn she was given by a friend. Margaret found that the yarn was not pleasant to work with as the fibers were loose and got everywhere. She is in no hurry to work with this again.

This little rabbit was a big attraction that night. So cute! It was made by Alice who used Patons 4 ply cotton yarn from John Lewis.

Karen finished this lovely Hitch-hiker scarf for the shoe Box Appeal. Just my colour, the charity might be short of a scarf if I have my way!

Fraya was a real show stopper in this dress which she made herself for her school show, The Dracula Rock show. A star is born!

Now as you know, Fraya, is one of our talented junior members. She is always busy and on Tuesday evening she managed to commandeer a table for herself. Here she is hard at work preparing items for her next creation.
