Monday 14th November
This meeting was our annual review meeting, including presentations by members of their knitting.
There was also a demonstration [by myself] of putting a frilled edge on a garment. A pattern for a scarf with this frilled edge can be downloaded by clicking here.
We also gave out instructions for making a Christmas tree bauble on the knitting machine - this can be downloaded here. Members who bring a knitted tree decoration to next month's meeting will have free entry.
The remainder of the meeting consisted of members' knitting:
Jane Harrisson was a welcome visitor, as she can only come occasionally, but she made up for it by bringing lots of knitting!
A jumper which she wore!
and much more, which, sadly, I failed to capture on camera!
Kathy also brought lots, of which this jumper is one - the photo does not do it justice, as it is machine knitted in furry yarn
Kath brought several items: including two children's cardis
and her own jumper
Pat had her own crochet twirly scarf
a pattern for which can be purchased from http://www.thecrochetchain.co.uk
[and you can see June wearing her pink jumper in the background]
as well as many other machine knitted scarves from the Guild of Machine Knitters exhibition display
I brought a few items too, including a frilled edge cardigan
and a hand knitted and crocheted collar
the pattern for which is available from this site http://www.annettepetavy.com/shop/
and Brenda wore two items, a skirt and a jumper
You can tell how much was on show by this stack which ended up by the knitting machine! Not even half of it
Another productive year!
