Show and tell

It was a really lovely day down at the beachfront and a few of us joined together again this week to have a bit of an extra yarn time before Christmas. It was a really productive day. Most of us were spinning but Peter was working on his new loom to get to know it.

Show and tellย 

Karin: had a bag of alpaca which had dyed in the blues/aqua colours & was busy spinning it as well

Jan: a skein of Brenda’s variegated blue tops & plied it with someย  silk

Hilary: spun plait of green origin unknown with some silk hankies

Cathy: resurrected her early chunky spinning & knitted a beautiful ribbed felted cap

Deb: WIP – her very colourful troll doll which kept us all amused.

Peter’s last weaving which was a roll of mixed fibres & textures, plus a thank you card from a group of students who were trying their hand at weaving with a couple of members from the Adelaide Hills Guild.


Where did you get that hat?

We have had some lovely hats over recent meetings.

Alexis had knitted and felted two very stylish hats. We loved the lime green colour of the top middle but the oatmeal one drew a lot of attention too because it just looked so good and was a perfect hat for a smart winter outfit. Middle bottom are Anne’s ribbed beanies. She spun the wool and the colours are striking and interesting. Good colours to cheer up winter! Top left is Hilary’s beret . So colourful and cheery. She spun leftover tops and don’t they look effective as they have been knitted up? Far left are Maria’s beanies from her spun wool. The purple and yellow looks good . It’s a visually interesting pattern. At the bottom she is making a gelati coloured beanie. Such a fun look with those colours. Winter does not have to be dull.
