For well over 12 years I've been knitting on Tuesday nights with friends! First it began at Faith's Fiber Arts Studio where I first learned to spin and increase my knitting skills;I miss her so much. Then Faith moved and Sue of RI Handspun invited us to her shop for Tuesday night knit ins; she continued the Tuesday tradition that has made our gatherings so much fun.
Last night was no exception: Carol R showed up with her woven treasures...her lovely handspun/handwoven shawl, her handwoven special technique shawl in plaid and her Bartlett blanket. The woman is steeped in weaving lately!
Judy arrived sporting her Shetland Triangle shawl knitted with her hand dyed yarn and beads. It is a tribute to her knitting and dyeing skills. The autumnal green in the shawl is a delight to the eye!
Gail brings such panache to the group. Here she holds a lovely striped hat in merino that she knitted for her grandson. What a lucky baby boy. She also is wearing a wonderful shrug she knitted; she added a special pin that we all admired.
Muriel provided us with inspiration as always. She wore a sweater that we want to reinterpret in handspun yarns.
Sue is the needle felting queen....check out her snowman progression. It is as always such a well executed needle felted sculpture that Sue designs. Of course, she's created another felted treasure for her granddaughter complete with Beatrix Potter buttons. Lastly she's begun a needle felted Nativity Set which is lovely in its simplicity....
My contirbution for the night was a skein of hand dyed handspun roving that is lovely to the touch. I have only 250 yards...what shall I make with it? It's between fingering and DK weight.
