Great hat!

 

Marjorie came up with another great beret this week full of vibrant , autumn colours from a colourway by Brenda Coulter of the Felting Ewe . Marjorie Navajo plied the tops to ensure colour separation and to increase the richness of the colour blend. The beret looks just great and Peter did a  lovely job of modelling it for us! Just the very thing to keep stylishly warm in winter.

Lots of knitting

Plenty of knitting going on at the moment. Marina has finally settled on a good way of making her 10 stitch blanket . She has worked at finding the best way of doing it for her and the result now is a lovely blanket which is growing each week. Meryl’s blue best is expertly knitted and is very neat. It is soft and drapes and the back had some interesting Aran effect knitting so it’s a very stylish vest. Sonya’s slippers, based on Hilary’s pattern are coming along and are so cheerful and colourful. Jan’s cream slouch beanie looks good. We tried it with her felted purple hat and that made a visually interesting impact on the hat which really dressed it up. It’s a good hat because you can style it. Think the knitting needles are still out because our weather has been very erratic and we have hat a lot of cold , windy and wet days which stop us form easily being outside as we normally are at this time of the year.
