The following pictures are of items created from our Tuesday group of ladies. The scarf by Faye was hand spun and woven using Merino and Cashmere wool. It will be a Christmas present for her lucky family in America.
The kookaburra was crocheted by Margaret. It will be taken to a little boy in Scandinavia along with a book called Fabulous Aussie Fables. The book was written and illustrated by another of our members named Julie.
This board of imaginative wet felting was created by the students of the Special Education Centre of Henry Kendall High School. Some of our members assisted the students in learning wet felting. Quite a strenuous task. The students were quite pleased with their colourful results.
Our talented crocheters have been hard at work creating new and exciting projects. Well done to Debbie and Margaret. Scraps of yarn can always be turned into a work of art.
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.
At Bev’s retirement village they are having money raising raffles and a farm display. These are the animals Bev Smith has created all from wool.
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.
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.
The Nostepinde is a traditional Scandinavian tool for winding wool balls. This one was brought in for show and tell one Tuesday.
Julie has been adding to her community of fairy folk with a guitar playing musician. The guitar was a gift from Lyn and came from Vienna.
