Hedgehogs Rule!

Celebrating the success of the sock knitting class! Margaret proudly resented these fab socks for display. Well done. She even had time to complete a hat for our Seafarers charity!

 Not to be out done, the lovely Karen had completed two pairs of socks. Rumour has that Karen can actually knit socks in her sleep!

Lisa was thrilled when her 90 year old grandmother walked down to the local shops to buy this yarn as a present for Lisa. As a result, Lisa has named this shawl, "Nanny Alma's Shawl."

Sally bought this New Lanark kit at the SECC. The hit included the stunning button and the yarn was 100 per cent new wool. Such a great idea!

Audrey caused a sensation when she sat this handsome hedgehog on the table. For obvious reasons it was named Maggie the Hedgehog! Maggie was the star of the evening! Audrey also managed to finish a couple of hats for our charity. Busy lady!

Noreen completed this lovely little baby cardigan from her favourite book of patterns

Yvonne is now an expert at making pram blankets using Rico Pompom yarn. It looks so cosy!

 Janice is always busy and this week she surprised us with the two "Cadet Fairies" which she made for someone in the Air Force Cadets. She has become a handy person with sewing machine over the last year or so. While watching TV, one Sunday morning, she discovered how to make these waterproof folders. The fabric was left over from her big bag and she plans to use the folders when she is researching her family tree.
These pink aran jackets were knitted by Janice during the Christmas break. Janice kindly donated one jacket and matching hat the Hospice shop on Baillieston Main St.

Roberta was also a star pupil at Karen's sock class. I love the colours. I wonder what her family will get for Christmas presents!

Karen managed to find time in her busy schedule  to make a hat for our charity.

Janice also managed to find time to complete two hats for our charity.

Stephanie created this blue hat for the Seafarers charity.

Fiona T has been busy making little hats and blankets for the Yarnigans Premature Baby charity. Look how tiny the hats are!

Magda has been very creative adding a new range of products to her business. I just love the colours of these notebook covers.

Last but not least, we had a first on Tuesday night...........Janet was so passionate about knitting that she got a tattoo to show her devotion to crafting. Go girl!
