Its Beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Margaret saw a very plain Christmas wreath during a Christmas shopping expedition. It was just what she wanted! She worked her knitting magic and added some seasonal adornments. Now she has an original door decoration with handmade charm. Love it.
Norma made this fabulous Star Bunting as part of a Secret Santa organised by For The Love Of Yarn. The stars were crocheted and then stiffened. They look great. Lovely idea. I must add this to my list of things to try.........that is turning into a really long list!
Spot the Grandma-to-be! Janice is totally motivated to create a stash of useful things for her future bundle of joy which will appear in June 2015. The Baby Ball is made from old jeans donated by the Mum-to-be. A lesson in recycling. The wee hats were knitted from a pattern that Janice got at the group last week. and below are a selection of bibs ready to be used.
Recycling comes in all shapes and forms. Anthea's daughter was doing The Rainforest Project at school and was encouraged to produce something that had been recycled. Anthea remembered an old project that had been lying in a bag waiting to be completed. Craftily, Anthea, recycled the yarn and made Sam the Sloth. Sam has become a bit of a hit at school and even the classroom assistant wants one.
Esther made these cute mini Christmas decorations!!!!!! I love these. Esther you are a star.
This traditional aran jacket was knitted by Catriona for a friend's grandson. I'm very fond of aran style jackets and I adore this one.
This dog hat would put a smile on anyone's face! Jill completed the baby hat for a friend. It will be loved and cherished.
Roberta knitted these Christmas mitts for her Granddaughter. The photograph does not show the sparkle in the yarn. These mitts will be worn with pride. Lovely.
Tuesday 2nd December is the Christmas party night. Just bring yourselves and a small gift for the pass the parcel game. Please do not spend a great deal of money on this. It is just a bit of fun. You could even recycle a gift you received last year and didn't use.
Congratulations to Karen who graduated as a nurse last week. Those three years flew in. Well done from all of us.
The group starts back again in the new year on Tuesday 6th January 2015 at 7pm. Have a safe and happy Christmas season.
