More from November

One of the challenges members had during the year was to weave something using variegated yarn. It had been mentioned several times during the year but not aggressively promoted. We were surprised how many items were brought to be shown on our final day for the year. Not all of them had been made during the year; some had stood the test of time and come out looking great.

It was a very full meeting with this challenge and the tea towel exchange, but there was a little bit of show and tell squeezed in.

Wendy had been really active and had several of her generous size scarves to show. To date she has worked exclusively with rigid heddles and her output has been prolific and colourful.

Not able to weave at the moment, Jenny was not to be outdone on the teatowel front. She knitted both a teatowel and a dishcloth in linen and says they are really fantastic to use. 
Rose's contribution was a "tree" (complete with bird's nest)  with tatted snowflake (or star) motifs. Everyone present was happy to take one home to put on their Christmas tree.

Festive good wishes to all and happy weaving, or at least weaving planning over the holiday season. What challenges will 2018 bring I wonder.
