Carol Ann's very impressive Zip Zag Lace patterned knitted blanket:
|Carol Ann's blanket is so large that half of it is hidden behind the table.|
|Zig-zag Lace detail|
|Hand dyed all wool yarns were used in her blanket|
Patricia decided she needed some colour in her LR so she dug into her stash to create this beautiful Afghan (blanket), knitted sideways, casting 160 stitches onto 48 inch - 8mm circular needles. Each row's yarn creates the fringe.
No, it's not your eyes or my photography. Maggie knit these wavy shawls for her friends, each with it's own meaningful memories for the recipients, one representing the sea and the other, sunsets.
They will be treasured keepsakes from a caring friend.
|A narrow cowl; 2 shawls in prayer shawl stitch knit from Maggie's stash.|
|Barb P knit this lovely shawl in a gradient yarn|
from this Ravelry Fruit Cocktail pattern
|Helene knit this interesting shawl that |
uses a yarn with silver in it (antimicrobial
and therapeutic properties).
|Marianne's bamboo shawls. Another case of problems with|
the beige bamboo warp breaking. Due to the flourescent
lighting, the colour is off in these closeups of the weave.
|Cynthia's woven scarves in tencel and |
acrylic (L) and acrylic and silk (R).
|Cynthia wove 2 doz tea towels in 2/8 cotton at 18 epi. using|
warps of white and natural mixed in a plain weave so she
could play with the design. She says plain weave is a great
teacher for watching your pic and evenness of beat.
|Two more tea towels by Cynthia from another warp.|
|Karen B's M&O's|
|Karen B's shadow weave towels in 8 harness twill variation|
|Stephanie's 8 shaft pinwheel runners. She|
discovered that the pinwheels showed better
with a beige weft after running out of the blue.
|Marg H's M&O's tea towels for a Stainless Steel kitchen, |
felted slippers, and some spinning just for variety.
The red slippers were knitted by Margie before Marg's felting.
Eco Dyeing: .
|Bonnie's Eco scarves using bolts, nails, rust, leaves|
and on the right, with mulberries.
Repurposing with dyeing:
|Terri dyed her Grandmother's crocheted doilies giving|
them new life for use as is or in other creative projects.
The dyeing really highlights the fine craftsmanship.
|Terri revitalized wardrobe|
items by dyeing this tank top,
a sweater & others not shown.
|Lilo learned to knit without patterns as a child, now 79 years|
ago. Still knitting without a pattern, she knit the sleeveless top
using a bamboo, cotton & linen yarn and
the scarf and ear warmers are all wool.
|Lilo used 2mm needles when knitting this |
sleeveless top in silk (w/o a pattern of course).
|Bonnie used slip stitch |
crochet for this hat.
|Karen G knitted the blue socks for a friend|
and the child's pair for her nephew's friend
|Nel's 3rd sock! Just because the|
ball of cotton yarn made 3 socks.
Don't be fooled by the socks!
She wove SEVEN blankets which
were sent to her grandchildren.
