First Show and Tell of the 2016/17 Season

There were lots of Show and Tell items at the first meeting after summer break. Our members were not only busy with normal guild activities but were also out running half marathons and keeping busy with many projects with their grandchildren. I think Klaudia and Marg are in a competition as to who is the most prolific member!

Klaudia wove many happy colour tea towels, and she knitted socks,
the blues green tweed sweater, the striped scarf and numerous hats!
Marg dyed painted warps and Koolaid as the dye for the roving
Studio week). That didn't keep her busy enough as she knitted
socks, wove these
b&w tea towels and a lovely bamboo scarf.
She used
Eco dyes (natural flora) for this silk shawl!

   Ilse hand painted tensile for this shawl woven in an 8-harness Huck weave. The large bedside rug is reversible and is woven in a 2 block weave on 4-harnesses.
Gail's specialty is Inkle weaving and woven rugs but
here she showed us the pillow cover she wove using weft
from blue jeans in various shades and
cut into strips

Diane L knit this lovely warm sweater
Not only did Diane H weave these turn twill tea towels,
she also wove a Huck weave red shawl in acrylic yarn
which she donated to our Comfort Bin.
The pattern of an 8-harness turn twill is demonstrated
really well by these tea towels woven by PJ.

Ilona brought two versions of the Hitchhiker scarf
in cotton and acrylic yarn.

Karen G knit the red baby sweater a
tweed baby hat, the purple hitch hiker scarf,
socks and spun the turquoise hank
and the grey soft kitty alpaca

Karen wove these 8 harness place mats, some
tea towels (not shown) and this detailed grey scarf

Barb L made these exquisite pine needle journal covers

Marianne H, with her visiting grandchildren, made marble paper
covering the canisters and making notebook covers

Doreen knit this fun sweater in between running 5k races and
half marathons,
coming in 1st in her age group in one of the 5k's
Congratulations Doreen!
