Grete R. showed us a beautiful shawl knit in Harrisville New England Shetland wool. She chose a mixture of blue, turquoise, gold and yellow and Vivian Hoxbro’s Small Wing Shawl pattern. The knitting of the shawl posed no challenges and is a substantial size. Grete also mentioned that this is project comes as a kit.
Mariela J. researched the Drops website for her project. She chose Magic Garden Allsorts in blue and although she modified the pattern she found it to be quite straightforward. And a big thank you Mariela for donating your work to the Guild sale.
Mary S. modeled an exquisitely patterned red sweater which she created for herself. The wool is Karabella Aurora in a rich red and the pattern Travelling Cables. The cables created the most flattering shaping and truly a piece of wearable art. Mary has been knitting this sweater at our meetings so it has been wonderful to see it appear on her needles. Great work!
Irene M. went traveling this year and somehow got separated from her knitting – we can all imagine the discomfort. Her husband sent her into the first yarn shop they found – this happened to be in Sweden where she picked up some Drops sock yarn and made a pair of mitts from Holli Yeoh’s pattern. They are beautiful and just in time for the cooler weather that is coming.
Debbie M. went to the Susanna Hanssen Bohus workshop and brought in her projects to show us. She had made two pairs of wrist warmers using the Bohus techniques and blends of angora and merino. The most interesting aspect for her was learning the new techniques and using a very fine gauge yarn. We saw from her samples that she is a very good student.
Judy D. is getting ready for the cool weather as well. She had knit two toques from stash yarn – all 100% wool. She used the Minnesota Winter Knitted Hat pattern for these two multi-coloured hats. The one she modeled she will keep for herself and the other she is donating to the Guild sale. Thanks for your donation.
Talk about topical! Chris S. was thinking about Hallowe’en when she knit this very cute felted Trick or Treat Bag. Her grandson is going to be the envy of all his friends when he goes out sporting this black bag with green skull.
