John Lewis Knitting Group
The King Pins
|Snapped at a friend's house (Thank you G. xx)|
|This artistic lady uses wool as interior design - isn't it lovely?|
She crochets the containers too!
Today had a good turn out and in fact the group is so large that from next week there is to be a change of venue - still within John Lewis but a bigger space.
My socks were finished, yet not sadly sewn at the seams - a little job for this evening I fear. I shall post a picture of them tomorrow - hopefully on my toes!
The other ladies had a variety of beautiful things on the go - here are just a few pics - do not want to upset anyone too much with my constant snapping ...
|This clever lady uses all the scraps to produce childrens jumpers|
|This intricate pattern is to be a scarf 'in the round'|
|Nearly finished - I so love this colour|
|This scarf had a 'sparkle' which did not show on camera|
|Thats better! Very lacy and sparkly|
|A lucky grandchild will get this lovely jumper|
|More of this beautiful work - nearly finished|
|A very colourful creation|
|Still cannot get this to 'sparkle' for the camera|
The lovely crystals do however add a super touch
I have now got my wools together for the baby blanket with the design stolen from the Amy Butler book 'Meadows'. If you remember this was the pic I snapped last week from the book with the pattern.
|Bad photo of page with pretty picnic rug|
And this was the incomplete pattern I tried to snitch (the finger got in the way!) ... luckily I was able to fathom it out with a little help from my friends.
|Damn! Tried to get a snap of the four row pattern in pic to copy!|
Shall have to buy the book now!
Well with the expertise of the ladies present I managed to work out the pattern and reduce it in size to fit a small blanket for a new baby - approximately 24" x 36" was decided as appropriate.
These are the colours I choose and this was my feeble attempt at knitting this morning ...
|Amy Butler Belle Organic DK by Rowan|
The colours are 'Cilentro', 'Peony', 'Robin's Egg', 'Indigo' and 'Persimmon'
As you can see it was more 'natter' than 'knitting' - well it was in my case anyway!
I also must add that I was one of the few 'good girls' who had obeyed orders and sported a name badge. I did not want a slap on the wrist with a knitting needle from our Knitting Tsar 'who must be obeyed at all times!'
|My name is on the tucked under ribbons!|
Do not want the world to know it - do I?
