October 2013

October was the Charity Competition, where everybody either knitted something 'to keep warm', this years theme, or donated some cash. Members secretly voted for both a charity item and the usual monthly competion.

Shirley made the winning Charity entry, a waistcoat in Sirdar Matisse on her chunky machine that hadn't seen the light of day for 20 years. It was a beautiful garment and looked much more complex than the actual pattern as the lace produced the points at the edges purely from the stitch transfers.

Here are some other beautiful and creative entries

The monthly competition
Winner in advanced group is Valerie with a self designed bolero style garment made in King Cole Galaxy. The ladder pattern was inspired by garments seen in retail  and the idea adapted to this design knitted with groups of needles in and out of work and cabling.
Cuff Design Details

 Marcia knitted a Carl Boyd top with beautiful pleating details around the neck.
