Stripes and things.

 Roberta is full of energy after all her holidays and has knitted this wee hooded cardigan, "Just in case!" The pattern was adapted from one found in a knitting magazine. Look at the buttons! Ladybirds! The big jumper is intended for her Hubby who was feeling neglected. "Who are you knitting for this time?" was his constant cry! This fab jumper has been worked in ICE YARN.

Karen had suggested we make some fabric bags for the Beatson patients. Janince made these two with fabric she had bought from IKEA. The bags are smart, bright and functional. Well done. Janice.

Jillian can just about turn her hand to any craft. This week she had completed this very fine shawl for a friend. The yarn had been purchased from STITCH IN TIME in Hamilton.

 Norma has been busy preparing for some Craft Fairs. I just love the little coin purses AND they are fully lined. The brooches are lovely. I hope people appreciate the amount of work people put into such items.

Patsy does it again! Quilting has a firm grip of Patsy. She can now rattle up a beautiful quilt in no time at all! The black and white cat quilt is for a friend's Golden Wedding anniversary!

Morag bought some yarn ages ago and forgot about it. The 3 balls of 100g will actually knit up into 4 little cardigans! Now that is value for money! You would never think that these two cardigans were knitted from the same ball of yarn!

Fiona Orr has been working on this Giant Granny Square for a friend for weeks. What amazes me is that Fiona's work is so neat it hardly requires any blocking!

The Happy Hookers will be participating in the Beatson Walk today. On Tuesday night, Norma said the total raised so far was £718.

Alison Explained the theory behind the TWIDDLE MUFFS for dementia sufferers. the different textures, yarns and adornments provide sensory calming for patients. We hope to have a couple of completed muffs to show and feel next week. If you have any spare textured yarn, ribbon, buttons, big beads, keys etc bring them in. A knitting pattern will also be available.
