All Sorts!

Stephanie had been busy knitting this lovely hat and jacket set. As you know, she always includes interesting buttons that had been purchased on the internet. It is great to see these heritage patterns coming back into fashion again. Unfortunately, I did not keep my Mum's. Anyway, this beautiful baby dress is knitted in cotton and looks fabulous!

Lyn had asked for pompoms for Kirstie Allthorp's Homemade Fair. She wants to set a world record for a continuous line of Pompoms and Stephanie was happy to participate.

Noreen was delighted to show this bonnie poncho and headband set that she had crocheted for her cousin's grand-daughter, Bonni. I love baby things!

Lyn has asked me to remind everyone that the annual Knit in Public Day is this Saturday and everyone is cordially invited to come along to Hobbycraft for a spot of crafting..

I thought Stephanie had done well with her pompom making but Roberta created an outstanding 43 pompoms for the world record attempt!  This is a great way to use up your odds and ends.

Isabel enjoys doing colour work and has knitted this amazing pair of socks as a present for a friend's retirement. The socks are spectacular!

Magda knitted this pair of aran weight socks for herself with yarn she received as a gift. She loved the self striping yarn and even managed to make the patterns coincide but she did suffer from second sock syndrome! Magda didn't believe it existed until now. Second sock syndrome is when a knitter completes one sock and then is unable to conjure up the enthusiasm to do the second sock! Karen and I have experienced being in the doldrums too. The good news is, that it is not permanent!
