November 2012

 The invited speaker this month Christine gave a really good demonstration and talk about the gloves she makes and sells for charity.
 Some of the members getting a closer look at some of the techniques

Gloves made in children and adult sizes

Trying on for fit

The beginners table winner was a pink top designed by Valerie and had very interesting edging detail. Ann made a number of hat and scarf sets for all the family.

The overall winner of the beginners annual competition was Valerie. Although only a knitter for about 2 years she has made so many of her own designs and no longer a beginner for next year.

This months advanced show and tell was won by Sue for the blue shawl. It was from an In-Ex pattern knitted to test out the knitting set up for another member. Marcia was 2nd with the lovely textured purple sweater and the 3rd was a pink sweater by Sandra.

The overall annual winner for advanced knitters was Phyllis with Sandra coming 2nd.

Prizes were awarded and the raffle held.

Valerie showed everyone some more items she had made some using designaknit.
In January the meeting will include the AGM and a talk by Sue about the machine knitters and clubs she visited while in Australia

Christine Millen a member of the Yateley weekly wednesday morning craft group held at Yateley Village Hall, will be attending this month to give a talk on her machine knitted gloves. Christine is an excellent machine knitter and her expertise very welcome. Just what we need for the chilly weather and in time for last minute Xmas gifts.

The annual show and tell competition concludes this month. Every entry is a valuable contribution and helps to inspire, keep the club active and promote the craft. The final winner is not easily forecast as its usually a close run right up to the last month, so get those entries finished and counted.
