Another crop of makes from our Knit and Natterers were on show on Friday,.
T is crocheting colourful wraps (shown above) for the yarn bombing installation we are taking part in this summer. We hope to identify a site within Alnwick Garden that we’ll be able to decorate with our handiwork. One suggestion was the Chatty Bench – a designated place to sit and chat, which would fit in with what our group is all about. We found out that this was right next to the toilets though, which put us off somewhat! We are now looking for somewhere else but wherever we end up it will certainly stand out with Tracey’s crocheting!.
A has crocheted a baby blanket.
She knitted this baby top (which has a matching hat too).
We’ve seen a lot of R’s gorgeous hexagon patchwork as it has grown over recent weeks. She’s not the only quilter in the group though. This week L showed us a quilt she’s been working on. The fabric prints, in lilac shades, have a butterfly theme.
The reverse is deep pink with polka dots.
Y has had a busy week but has not neglected her knitting. She’s been working on this cabled cardigan.
I’m still spinning alpaca and have tried dying some of it.
All in all a busy week for the group.
