Elena's Degree Show

Elena came along to the group to learn how to crochet as part of a project for her Art Degree. She has now come to the exciting conclusion of her studies and welcomes us to come along and view The Degree Show on Saturday 13th June in The Tontine Buildings on Trongate. Come on ladies, our wee group is branching out into all sorts of interesting areas! We have enjoyed watching Elena's crochet journey from hook to printed image and we wish her every success in the future.

Isabel loves knitting socks and is always up for a challenge. She enjoys colour work and is not afraid to mix sections from different patterns. This pair of socks is stunning!

Janice has been slogging away making this baby bag for her daughter-in-law. The fabric is by special request as mum to be is a big Spiderman fan. The bag was made under the expert directions of Izzy, who can make these bags in her sleep. Janice is delighted to have completed the project and insists that it will be a one off!

Janice also had time to knit a bonnie wee jacket from the Women's Weekly Magazine. The toggles just finish it off beautifully. The giraffe height chart is another make for the new arrival.

 Patsy is an experienced sewer but has recently taken up quilting with the assistance of Izzy. These are her first two quilts! The small quilt matches the baby bag she made for her great nephew and the large quilt is for her sister. Both quilts are beautiful.

Roberta was delighted to show off this pretty cardigan which will be winging its way to New Zealand as we speak! Roberta started the Christmas stockings at Gartmore and is delighted to be so organised with her Christmas gifts. She actually had time to make something for herself! The shawl was completed in time for Roberta to take away on holiday.

 Anthea had been spinning yarn for Magda. The rainbow yarn is plied with grey and a sparkle thread has been added. This is Merino superwash and is lace weight. As you can see Magda loved the finish product! I wonder what she will make?

 Sadly, we lost a good friend last weekend. Margaret passed away after a short illness. We have been so touched by her passing that Caroline, Linda, Norma, Susan, Lisa, Lyn, Fee and Magda have agreed to participate in a 10k charity walk to raise funds for the Beatson and the new Lanarkshire Beatson. Norma has set up a Just Giving Page using the name of the Happy Hookers. We shall also send round a sheet on club nights if you would prefer.

Margaret's funeral is at Daldowie at 1.45pm on Monday 1st June if you are able to attend.
