Dec Christmas Pot Luck and Show n Tell

Before our wonderful pot luck Christmas luncheon, we had Show N Tell. I didn't get many photos as the battery on my camera died half way through :( and there were many reports of items already sent away as gifts. The photo opportunities I missed were:
  Barb L's exquisite colonial overshots, handspun & dyed cotton vest
  Hélène's matching knitted pink ballet jackets for her granddaughters

  Michelle's woven scarves
  Marianne H's loom
  Marie's therapy knitting- scarf
  Diane's socks 

  Raelene's baby leg warmer 
  Joyce's fingerless gloves 
 
MaryAnna's 12 harness baroque sampler and
  Jen's goat puppet from Switzerland - it was so cute and so appropriate since
            she raises goats
Beautiful work, All of you! 

 
Greta's custom doggy sweater and her scrappy knits

Karen showing her treasures from Cusco, Peru - a beautiful 4 harness woven wool (Llama?) cloth and her baby alpaca poncho woven on a 2 harness loom


Her poncho can be worn many ways. I was stunned that this was woven on 2 harnesses!
