Our September meeting was one of our ‘spinning and weaving’ sessions, and for once we had some people weaving (usually people just bring wheels rather than looms) – finishing off the woven berets from our August workshop. Some were finished:
and some were still works in progress:
(There was another finished one, but the owner/creator said she was wearing it once only, and could not be persuaded to put it on for a photograph – off, it just didn’t have the same impact.)
Meanwhile, many of us were spinning, and colour seemed to be the order of the day, from orange
in fluff, and in spun form:
to blues and violets, both spun and plied (and ready to go):
The emphasis on colour seemed to have spread to the knitting members brought along as well:
though some of us were also working in natural fleece colours.
One of the great things about the Guild is that it is a wonderful place to sort out problems, whether they involve techniques, useful tips which can help find a solution or straightforward running repairs…
Next month’s meeting is the ‘Spinning to the Crimp’ workshop, which should be interesting. Don’t forget that you can check out the events page for information on what to bring along!
