Quilts, hats, scarves and socks!

Stephanie was as pleased as  punch to show off her completed Quilt for Yorkhill Hospital. This is a charity run by Val Lennox and supported by the Village Patchers in Bishopbriggs. It provides quilts for seriously ill children. Stephanie had fun doing this one.

Roberta has been busy working on these two crocheted scarves and hat. She doesn't let the grass grow under her feet.

Karen has been developing her crochet skills by creating decorative edgings to display her completed cross-stitch projects. I am truly impressed with these. In a spare moment she also had time to rattle up a pair of socks and this lovely little baby blanket for the Yarnigans charity for premature babies. What a star!

Margaret just loves knitting baby garments. This lovely little jacket has such cute buttons to set it off.

Yvonne has used Rico Pompom yarn to create this cosy scarf.

Jean was delighted to show off this minaiture bag that she crocheted in cotton with size 11 seed beads done with 0000 needles. As an added extra she remembered to showcase this delicate beadwork bracelet.

Janice had a special request from her son to create a minion doll for his girlfriend for Valentine's Day. She adapted a pattern and was delighted with the end product. Janice has caught the sock knitting bug and has completed another pair of socks for herself.

Isabel loves loves to do colour work and is now passionate about socks. I love this colour combination.

Talented Magda was really pleased with the way this cowl worked out. The yarn was from B & M.

I wondered where this photograph had gone! This is the book that Noreen is using at the moment to knit more baby clothes.

Anthea has been in a hat mood recently. The grey hats she crocheted for her daughters and the little pink and white hat is for the Yarnigans charity. Anthea has also completed a colourful slouchy peaked hat and scarf for herself. Her last photograph is a tubular crochet hook case which she recently completed.

Fiona completed this trendy poncho while she was at the group on Tuesday night. The wrist warmers she made for Lisa.

Zuzanna is following in her mother's footsteps! Learning new skills beautifully. Here she has crocheted blocks for a baby blanket for the Yarnigans charity. I can't wait until it is finished. It will be stunning!

Janet is a new member to our group. She brought along samples of handmade soaps that she had made with her children. The soaps are chemical  free and good for skin conditions. The soaps were Lavender, Sea Breeze, Coconut and Sesame seeds, Sesame and Mustard powder and my favourite, Peppermint. Janet kindly donated these samples as a prize for the raffle. No fighting now, you can get a raffle ticket with you display any of your completed projects.

Just as the evening drew to a close, Magda completed this amazing baby blanket for the Yarnigans charity. Stunning!

Anyone who wants their nails done next week please let Elaine know so she can tell Tracy.

Our group charity, knitting Hats and Balaclavas for sea-farers ends on June 24th 2014. Plenty of time to knit two or three hundred! Each completed donation enters you into a special raffle so get knitting.
