Variety is the spice of life!

This amazing lace baby shawl was knitted by Joyce. I was blown away by the intricate detail in this work. Joyce knitted this work of art and Roberta worked her magic by sewing all of the pieces together. Now, that is what you call teamwork!

Margaret has been busy again with the old knitting pins and was delighted to display this little hooded jacket and the little blue and white jumper and hat you can see below. These garments were made for a friend at work.

This is the pair socks I knitted with Lisa's hand-dyed yarn. I think the colourway is called Peacock. It could be called Deep Fried Spam for all I care! I just loved the bold colours.

Roberta knitted this lovely wee baby cardigan for her niece who is about to become a gran. Sadly, you can't see the sparkle in this yarn. So cute!

DO NOT ADJUST YOUR SET!!!!!! Stephanie had asked if anyone would be interested in knitting GERMS for a Health Project run by Strathclyde University and the Science Centre. Audrey was the first of our group to complete some GERMS. They are lovely! This handsome tortoise and the waistcoat were also by Audrey. The waistcoat is in Super Chunky by Sirdar Indie.

Sally has been working on this Infinity Wrap in Pure Wool. The pattern was found in KNIT TODAY and the body displaying the wrap was found at the Knitting Group! NAME THAT BODY!

Anthea made this Giant Granny Square Bag for Jill as a Christmas present. She lined it and attached handles to complete the bag. as you can see in the picture below. What a great idea! Ideal for carrying craft supplies to our group meetings.

Ally has almost finished this pram blanket in James Seabrett - Baby Marble. These colours really appeal to me.

Isabel is still enjoying her colourwork and sock knitting. She makes it look so easy! This pair of socks is for a friend who is about to retire.
P.S. Isabel belongs the body modelling the Infinity Wrap. Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone.

 I love our Knitting Group. Every week I am astounded by the ideas and creativity by the people around me. This week, Morag brought along some amazing figures she had created. They are from a book of knitted fairies and animals. When she got into the zone, she then adapted the patterns to create her own imaginative characters. These are such great fun!
