Felting Workshop

What a wonderful day we all had at the cottage today. There was six of us attending the Nuno Felting workshop with the very talented Carolyn Kohler. Everyone went home very happy with their wrap and they were all so different but all looked just amazing. I asked the ladies to share their thoughts on the workshop and here is what they had to say …
* Marvellous workshop with a patient and talented tutor.
* I am so thrilled with the skills I have learnt today and so proud of my piece.
*Thank you so much Carolyn for a wonderful day, your calmness and encouragement was invaluable.
*I am thrilled with my Shawl and am In awe of the wonderful creations you guided us all to produce. This was an unforgettable day and the start of a whole new fibre adventure for me.
Carolyn has promised to come back next year to do another workshop for those who were interested but unable to attend today.

Knitting off the Bobbin

 

Jan S wearing her wild spun knitted off the bobbin shawl, her daughter is now suffering from shawl envy…. guess she’ll have to make another!

Jenny M (with her back to us) is wearing the fabulous creation from her wild spun off the bobbin shawl.

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.

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.
