Back to the Studio
The lovely wool shawl that is pictured to the left was started as part of our demonstration at the train station anniversary event. In spite of having many distractions our intrepid weaver, Linda, managed to complete this beauty. It has a lovely twill border on all four sides. If you go back to a previous post you can see here working on the loom.
This shawl will be one of the silent auction items at our November Show and Sale, Elegant Threads. See the side bar for more information.
The list of silent auction items also includes a corduroy rug similar to the one pictured here.
The knitters in our group have also been busy. Pictured below is one of Jeanette's delicate shawls. The colours are amazing. The wool yarn is variegated and knitted so that stripes of different colours come and go across and around the piece.
David's poncho is in keeping with the fall theme. It reminds us that the temperature is dropping out there. Soon we will be looking to bundle up and keep warm. Keeping warm is the theme of our current public exhibit.
