Bel’s Niddy-noddy

Bel made this very nifty niddy-noddy out of pieces of plastic pipe and a couple of connectors that she bought from Bunnings.  What a clever idea, and once you have your yarn wound on, you can dye it while it is still on there.  Ingenious.

Lyn’s Fashion

Lyn brought in a few of her clothing pieces that she had put together for a few events that we would be attending.  This is such an amazing crocheted jacket.

Next she modelled one of her lovely ponchos woven on the Saori loom.

Naomi modelled a couple of Lyn’s sleeveless jackets that she made using Saori woven scarves and wraps.

Trudie’s Shibori


Trudie, Donna and Denise were having a lovely time spinning outside the Patonga Bakehouse Art Gallery during Trudie’s exhibition.  There were beautiful Shibori indigo dyed scarves and shawls in silk, wool and cotton.  The exhibition was a great success.

Plenty of our members went along to the exhibition and some gorgeous purchases were made.  Jenni bought this lovely shawl,


Katie came home with a lovely silk scarf, and a shawl for Lyn too.

Bel’s Sock Needle

If you love knitting socks, then this is the knitting needle for you.  Bel brought this tiniest of circular needle to show us the other day, which is for knitting socks.  Apparently you still need to use double pointed needles for the heels, but this needle is perfect for the rest.

Nancy’s Gloves

Nancy was taking a trip home to the UK and asked for some greasy wool gloves as her hands get very cold.  Bev S did the spinning and Beth did the knitting for these amazingly warm, thick gloves.  Here is Nancy wearing them on her trip and she looks very snug.

Lyn, Gay and Trudie attended the Central Coast Grammar School Spring Fair this year.  They had a lovely spot in the sun, although the day was pretty quiet for us. The ladies still had a nice day together.
