Wool Bowls

Lyn Hilton from our neighbours, The Potter’s Society, has made some lovely pottery wool bowls for all our knitters and crocheters.  It stops your ball from rolling all over the place.  Won’t stop your cat from attacking it though.  We love Lyn’s beautiful bowls.

Collaborative Crochet

I was in Christchurch, New Zealand recently and in the art gallery they had a large, bright yellow crocheted piece hanging on the wall.  There were bench seats and a low table nearby with a lovely view of the hanging.  Yellow wool and crochet hooks aplenty were available for anyone with the ability and desire to make a piece to be added on.  What a brilliant idea.  Here’s my little offering.  Naomi.

Spinning Wheel and Spindle

Sukrita has been playing around again.  The two skeins and the ball on the left were all spun into singles using a spindle and the skeins were plied using a spinning wheel.  On the right we have a pale skein of raw unwashed merino and both skeins on the right were spun using a spinning wheel and Navajo plied.

Lee’s Hats

Lee has been super busy making hats for the winter.  The top left hat was made using wool dyed during Trudie’s dyeing day.  The two bottom left were both made using Lee’s handspun which was dyed with natural dyes.  Most of the hats were done on a knitting loom.
