Winter Fashions

Sharon \bought real Aran yarn when she was in Ireland to knit this amazing coat for herself. The pattern had been her Mum's from long ago. If you keep a thing long enough........A fabulous
coat. Look at the sleeves!

Fee is terribly shy! This wee blanket is loud and full of joy. I love it! A great gift.

I've been watching Jill work on this wee blanket for the last couple of weeks. I would never have thought of using these colours together but they work!  Jill used Stylecraft acrylic. Another great gift!

Elaine looks shattered! She has just completed this HUGE blanket as a Christmas present for someone. Shhh! Its a secret!

Janice is always thinking about her wonderful grandson.Now he has his own personal Christmas stocking. She even knitted the cuff! The Twiddlemuff was for a lady that Lisa knows. These muffs are worth their weight in gold because they provide calm and tranquility to those who need it.

Magda has been experimenting with hand dyeing. It did not turn out as she had hoped but it still looks wonderful. The hat is for herself. Well, it is that time of the year! Chilly!

Isabel has been busy knitting little blue and white things as a gift for a friend! Look at the tiny socks!

Fiona O has been crocheting tiny Christmas trees for some special friends. They will be filled with sweets. Love these little ideas!

Fiona also had time to put some of Lisa's FTLOY yarn to good use. The Infinirty scarf has been worked in Firework!

Roberta has been busy making more squares for blankets for Yorkhill. Well, you know what I mean!

 ......and just when you think you've seen it all, Donna pulls out these characters from Star Wars! Speechless! But in a good way. These are a gift for someone. Brilliant

.......and just when you thought it was all over, Ally sent me some photos of other finishes. The first is a chemo hat for a friend made by Ally.

Izzi used the left over yarn from this hat to crochet three little hats for Preemie babies. Unfortunately, the photo did a disappearing trick while travelling between the ipad and the blog. Sorry, Izzi. xx

Lorraine also made a chemo hat for the same friend. I like the flower! Very fetching!

Ally and her work colleague, Karin, completed some Twiddlemuffs. All very different and facinating for the old people who receive them.

1st December is our Christmas night. If you would like to join the pass the parcel game then bring a gift to the value of £5.

1st December is our last night because the parking situation is manic at the Fort leading up to Christmas.

 Stephanie & Magda will be meeting in M & S cafe on Tuesday 5th of January 2016 if you are free to come along.

12th January 2016 we will meet in the Management Suite as usual.

Just a wee reminder that it would help me a great deal if you could bring me your  finishes to have them photographed.

Happy crafting.
