Pretty in Pink
My finish this week is this pretty little bolero. I saw this pattern and was determined to try it out. It is a fairly easy project to knit but you have to pick up and knit sections of the band, which can be slow and laborious. However, I would use this pattern again.
Stephanie fell in love with this fabric. She backed it with a lovely soft white fleece and then quilted it by following the roads. This would also work as a play mat.
Magda has been experimenting with dyeing yarn. On the bottom skein she used food dyes. The top skein is merino in aran weight. All dyed and spun by her own fair hands!
Alison had been working on this stunning baby blanket during the craft day. This is for a friend at wor.k
Catriona is always busy. She seems to have numerous projects on the go, and all of them are magnificent! This is a First Communion dress for a friend's granddaughter. The bodice is beautiful!
Kat was as proud as punch to display her second big finish in crochet. This colourful baby blanket may a gift to someone expecting a baby OR she may keep it for herself if she can't part with it.
Catriona had a second finish this week. This stylish boy's aran jacket has been beautifully worked. Such patience! This one is for sale.
Linda organises the Shoe Box Appeal in her work. The left hand pram blanket has been worked in plain knit stitch which is very effective. The second blanket has been made from all of those bits and bobs left over from previous projects. Both will be greatly appreciated.
I love this. Sharon is now an expert at knitting these baby cocoons. This one has been done in, "Sweet Dreams" from the Bargain Wool Shop at the Barras. The colour change is so subtle.
