Flower Power!

I just love these purses! Norma crocheted and lined these little coin purses as an experiment. The clasps were an internet buy from Shanghai and they got lots of attention. This eye-lash yarn waistcoat uses a yarn called Tinsel, which has a lovely sparkle to it. This little treasure is for a colleague's granddaughter.

 Norma had lots of time while on holiday to make this soft Pompon pram blanket and a corner to corner using yarn that had been purchased from ALDI.

Isabel completed a pair of socks on holiday using Regia Hand-dyed mixed with another yarn that she was not so keen on. They look great!

I knitted this wee matinee jacket with yarn I picked up at a swap night. It is for the Hospice shop on Baillieston Main St.

 Pompon yarn is very popular with the group because it is easy to knit up and the completed project is always so soft. Jean has added a point of extra interest by including some satin flowers as decoraton. The little dog is for a craft fair in the Merchant City.

Lisa has found time to create a little hat for the baby. She has developed her own pattern and named it Bella's Beanie. Lisa used two strands of Wendy Peter Pan.

Fiona Orr used Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake Chunky to create a cute little new born hat. She managed to improvise the ears by herself. Clever girl!

This picture does not do this shawl justice. Roberta certainly put a great deal of effort into knitting this. At one point she actually had 430 stitches on one needle! It is magnificent!

Santa and his penguin helper are for under Roberta's Christmas tree. It is that time of year again.

This stunning outfit is by Catriona. The pattern is called "Millie's Secret Garden" and can be purchased from an internet site called "I*Believe* in Angels." Take the time and look at the little bootees. Look at the detail. Wow!

I could not resist showing both photographs of the lovely Bella wearing this beautiful dress knitted by Phyllis. The yarn is Lisa's Sunshine and the pattern is called Sproutlet. Every picture tells a story!
