Alkaline

Hi people!

We had an exciting meeting this week, with even more crafts than last week, and a big crowd of visitors came to see us knit!
The un-summery weather seems to have impacted the choice of projects this week, we saw a diagonal garter stitch scarf, as well as the completion of a diagonally ribbed scarf, a seed stitch scarf knitted in a beige-y pure wool, fluffy scarves in both blue and a mixture of colours. We also had a very cool shadow knit scarf with blue stripes, back after a bit rest.
We also had a multicolour sock being knit as a test, in super-small size for a tiger toy, a completed first pair of socks, and some first attempts towards a stuffed toy lion.

We had a range of crochet projects too, including granny squares being crocheted in bright colours with a view to making a wall hanging, more of the super-delicate lacy doilies, and golden crochet roses.

We also saw a cross stitch celtic knot keyring, and got to watch some (possibly) 16th century finger loop braiding. In a blatant attempt to bribe the blogger I got to try it out, and can report that it's very fun :).

Happy crafting!
Hugh.

Can I bring my drop spindle?

Do you have a regular time and venue for your weekend meetups? Wednesdays are always a no-go for me, which is why I have never made it along despite knowing of the group's existence.

I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to bring the drop spindle unless the venu objects but we'll only know if you try. :)

As for weekends, they are alternating Satudays and Sunday at Duble Dutch cafe. The best way to keep up to date is to join the mailing list where we send out reminders. Follow the links to our website on the side of the blo.

Cheers!
