Annual Celebration December 2016
The club meeting was a celebration of our knitting, and members gathered with their entries to our annual exhibition. The winner is chosen by secret ballot of those present, and this year it was Margaret who won! With a lovely panelled cardigan, joined with a mock cable effect.
Next in line, and our runner up was Kath, with a Sue Booth design. She was presented with a felting kit, kindly donated by our great friend, Jill Brownjohn.
Then we had another Sue Booth design, this time knitted by Brenda.
Mary showed us a piece of wire knitting, made into a fascinator.
Pat had a cardigan, which she knitted on a mid-gauge machine, and for which she twisted 5 strands of 2/30s together.
Ali had made a cardigan for her daughter, a colourful interpretation of an Alison Dupernex pattern
Lynda had the Hybrid cardigan, for which a pattern is available in the newsletter, or from the pattern section of this site.
Lynda also had a cut and sew jacket, made as a project for the Guild of Machine Knitters journal. Knitted in lambswool and boucle combined, as a straight piece of fabric, and cut from a dressmaking pattern, and sewn with an overlocker and by hand.
We also had food, drink and yarn sales.
